Southwest Iowa REC is a member of the Iowa One Call System. This service allows anyone working near underground lines the convenience of making one phone call to 8-1-1 to request a location of buried facilities.
Required notice before digging is 48 hours before the planned work, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. There is an exception for emergencies.
Remember, before you dig, call Iowa One Call - dial 811 or toll-free 800-292-8989.
