Diggers Hotline of Nebraska

"Call before you dig"
1-800-331-5666 or go to http://www.ne-diggers.com        

State law requires that a call be made to Diggers Hotline of Nebraska before digging.  This is to prevent damage to buried cable or lines that may be in your work "dig" area.

After the call is placed, Diggers Hotline contacts all local utilities that show they have buried cable or lines in the area.  Unless it's an emergency, the utilities have 48 hours to check the area and mark where buried lines are.

NOTE:  Privately owned lines are not located.  The owner is responsible for locating privately owned lines.

For water service locates, the City is responsible for the water main and the portion of the service line that extends to the easement where the main shut-off is.  The owner is responsible for the line connecting to the shut-off and extending into the property.

For sewer service locates, the City is responsible for the sewer main.  The owner is responsible for the line that is tapped to the main and extends into the property.
