National Safe Digging Month

April is National Safe Digging Month

April is recognized by Congress and most Governors across the U.S. as National Safe Digging Month (NSDM).

Because it's the time of year when temperatures increase in many parts of the country and spring digging projects begin, April is an important time to remember how important it is to contact 811 at least a few days before putting a shovel in the ground.
