Call Before You Dig (Kentucky 811)

Before you begin any project that will require digging into your property, be aware that there could be underground utility lines that could both present a hazard or if damaged could interrupt your services.

The Kentucky 811 program, commonly known as BUD, provides a simple way to request utility marking prior to any digging. For more information or to request utility location marking, call 811 or visit
