Presenting the Utility Defenders

The Utility Defenders protect our neighborhoods, friends and families by protecting underground utilities and encouraging everyone to dig safely.

Utilities are services that provide lights, heat, drinking water, internet and safe wastewater drainage. These utilities are often buried in the ground; they can be damaged if exposed when someone digs without first calling their local notification center to have the area professionally located. That’s why the Utility Defenders say, “Wait! Locate! Before you dig.”
