Locating Underground Utility Lines
In South Dakota, you are required by law to call at least two working days before you dig. For safety and economic reasons, you want to avoid digging into buried utilities like power cables, gas lines, telephone cables, etc. If you plan to dig a hole or trench more than a foot deep on your property, you must phone South Dakota One Call.
H-D will locate the primary lines to your meter. For the secondary lines that you own from the meter to your structures you can call an electrician or H-D can locate these for a small fee.
When you want to dig make sure you have information ready before calling South Dakota One Call at 811. Information you will need includes your address and phone number, the companies that serve your area and the type of work you plan to do.
South Dakota One Call doesn't mark the lines on your property but contacts those who are responsible to locate them.
After your call, one or more locators will visit your site and mark utilities with flags and paint. When you begin work, make sure to stay at least two feet from the marked lines.
A simple call may also avert a possible serious incident.
