Digging? Be Sure to Call Diggers Hotline!

The City of Whitewater would like to share the Diggers Hotline information with you in order to properly locate underground lines prior to work on your land. This is crucial to protecting the safety of family, neighbors and the general public. Skipping this step is dangerous and costly. The Diggers Hotline service is Wisconsin’s statewide one-call notification system that was developed in order to provide excavators and the general public the ability to inform multiple owners of underground facilities of excavation with a single call. Wisconsin Statute 182.0175 requires residents to notify Diggers Hotline before beginning excavation, grading, trenching, digging, drilling, use of an augur, tunneling, scraping, plowing cable or piping on your land. Excavation, according to law, classifies anything that moves, removes or displaces earth, rock, or other material in or on the ground. To contact Diggers Hotline dial 811 or 1-800-242-8511, or visit their website at http://diggershotline.com/.
