State residents reminded to call 811 before digging

As part of National Safe Digging Month in April, Atmos Energy is reminding residents about the state law to call 811 before digging.

"With one call to 811, all buried utility lines will be marked," Atmos Energy Vice President of Operations Dave Good said in a news release. "The leading cause of pipeline damage remains the failure to call 811 for line locates."

Colorado requires at least three business days' notice before excavation begins, according to the release.
