Whenever your plans outside include digging, it is imperative that you first place a phone call to Louisiana One Call to make sure there are no buried wires or cables to interfere with your plans. Any buried pipes, power lines or cables will then be marked with paint so you can avoid cutting any utility services. The service is free, but marking these utilities requires a 48-hour notice. Claiborne Electric and other utility companies throughout the state participate in the Louisiana One Call program. The phone number is 811, or you may dial 1.800.272.3020.
