Albert Einstein once encouraged us to “Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better.”
Although it’s likely not what he had in mind, that is great advice to avoid hazards when starting your outdoor projects. To put it another way, know what’s below before you dig. Putting shovel to dirt can quickly turn into a dangerous situation if your spade were to strike a Lynches River Electric Cooperative underground line or one of the several other utilities delivering water, cable, or gas to your home.
Before you dig, dial 811 or visit sc811.com to protect underground utilities. Careless digging poses a threat to people, pipelines, and underground facilities. Contact 811 first and help keep our community safe.
For projects that require moving or extending Lynches River Electric’s underground power lines or that occur under overhead lines, contact us Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at (843) 672-6111 or (800) 922-3486.
