Be safe! This means being aware of utility lines running underground. Colorado state law requires anyone engaging in any type of excavation to give notice of two business days.
The Utility Notification Center of Colorado (UNCC) is your contact. UNCC notifies the utility operators in your area so they can determine what utility-owned underground facilities may exist at your planned excavation site.
Call toll free at (800) 922-1987, or dial 811, or use the UNCC website colorado811.org.

The locating is available to be done by Four Corners Locating Services, LLC (970) 565-8316 with a customer charge that is paid directly to them.
