O.U.P.S. Information


Please be sure to call the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (O.U.P.S.) at least 48 hours before you begin any digging at 1-800-362-2764 (or 8-1-1). The 48 hour advance notice excludes weekends and legal holidays.

Additional information is available on the O.U.P.S. web site for homeowners and contractors. Excavation requests also can be submitted online through the O.U.P.S. web site.

With the warm weather comes the desire to work outside and make improvements to the home. For your safety, remember to call before you begin any digging. This free service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Ohio Utilities Protection Service will notify all utilities registered with them to locate any underground lines in your area. Remember: call before you dig; wait the required time for marking by the utility owner/operators; respect the marks; and dig with care. It’s the law; and it saves time, money, property and lives!

Please call before you dig!
