Below-average temperatures are giving way to pleasant spring conditions across the Door Peninsula, and that comes with a reminder before you begin any yard construction projects. Wisconsin law requires individuals and firms to contact Diggers Hotline three business days before they break ground. Public Relations Director Chad Krueger explains what information you will need to know before you make the call or complete their online submission form.
Krueger says that the hotline must be utilized before every project. Once your local utility has highlighted any underground hazards with spray paint or flags, digging can begin. It is recommended that you avoid the marked area by at least 18 inches.
