If you're planning to dig or build near Idaho Power's overhead or underground electrical lines, call Dig Line at the One Call Center. Idaho law says you must call for permission first to ensure your safety and electric service reliability.
You can call 811 from anywhere to reach the One Call Center.
To avoid the danger of accidentally cutting into underground power lines, and to ensure your compliance with the law, call the One Call Center at least two working days before you dig. A new national number, 811, makes the notification process easier by reducing the problems created with having multiple numbers for different centers around the country. Calling 811 automatically routes the caller to the closest local One Call Center.
After providing the center with information about a digging project, operators will alert the appropriate utilities and send a crew to the job site to mark the locations of underground facilities free of charge. Locating these underground power lines and cables helps to prevent personal injury and costly damage to utility lines.
When you call, be prepared to supply the location, scheduled date, type of work and information about the company or contractor doing the work.
