INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Power and Light is reminding customers to call before they start digging for outdoor projects to prevent injuries or serious incidents.

Before starting any outdoor construction or digging projects, IPL asks you should call 811 at least two business days before. You can also submit requests online.

When you a call or submit a request, a utility crew member will come and mark the location of electrical, gas, and other underground utility lines.

If you don't finish your outdoor projects within 10 business days of the initial marking, you are asked to submit another request to make sure all of the lines are still marked.
