April is National Safe Digging Month




ARDMORE, Oklahoma (KXII) – April is National Safe Digging Month – and now that the frost is over, homeowners may be considering installing a pool or garden.

Cherokee Ballard with Oklahoma Natural Gas said the only way homeowners can safely dig is to call 811 before putting the shovel in the ground.

This is the time when a lot of people assess their landscaping, Ballard said. And especially with all the time we’ve had this past year

Carin Salazar of the Marcums Nursery in Ardmore said she is watching customers decide to replace plants now.

This frost killed a lot of things, Salazar said. You can tell if it’s not going to come back and then you just replace it. But you also want to replace it before it gets too hot.

This is why April is a good month for planting. But there is more than dirt and worms in the ground.

The last thing you want to do is hit a gas line or power line or the Internet and cause an outage in your neighborhood, Ballard said. You don’t want to disturb your neighbors. You don’t want to cause serious injury to anyone.

To keep everyone safe, the law says to call 8-1-1 to check the location of gas and utility lines on a property.

Either they’ll spray paint lines of different colors from the different ground services or they’ll put those little flags up, Ballard said. They will put them in your yard so you know where your lines are, so you know where not to dig.

Dig at least two feet from the flags and lines.

plan definitely, says Salazar. Especially if it’s a big project you want to do.

The service cand also be requested online. It’s free and required by law.

Then you can start your project without worries, said Ballard. Don’t worry about hitting lines or anything.

Oklahoma Natural Gas also created a website where those looking to dig can take a safe digging quiz to enter a contest for a gift card.

Earn potentially a hundred bucks and you may be able to pay to replant this tree, Ballard said.
