Shell reminds you to call 811 before you dig

August 11 is National Call 811 Day - keep your community safe by calling before digging on your property

HOUSTON — Celebrate National Call 811 Day by calling or going online before you start any digging or excavation on your property.  Even small gardening projects can damage underground utility lines, causing injury, costly repair, neighborhood outages and fines.

Simply call 811, or go online to Shell.US/Call811 to request utility workers to come to your home or business within 48 hours, and they will mark everywhere underground utility lines are located.
