Atmos Energy - Notice to Customers - New Provisions Related to the Call-Before-You-Dig Requirement
Atmos Energy recently mailed-out notices to customers about the "new provisions related to the call-before-you-dig requirement". If you are considering digging anywhere on your property, please be certain to call 811 before you dig. Any damage to natural gas lines from excavation work can lead to explosion or fire and can cause property damage, serious injuries or death.
Once the call center is contacted (at least two working days prior to the start of excavation), natural gas operators will come out and mark the location of gas lines on residents' properties.
Penalties for violating the statute are up to $1,250 for the first violation, $2,000 for a second violatin, and $4,000 for subsequent violations.
