Diggers Hotline of Nebraska -- Dial 811

It is the law in Nebraska that prior to any digging, the site shall be cleared by Diggers Hotline. Call 811 and be prepared to provide your name, the location of the job, contractor doing the work, type of work, and start date. All utilities will be notified to locate any possible obstacles to your digging and flag the underground locations.

If you see little flags in the right-of-way, it means that underground utilities have been located.
