    I am being asked to install a drainage system. I have been told that I can call a company that will come and mark the utilities. Can anyone give me some info for my area.

    800-344-8377 in <a href=http://www.digtess.com/>Texas</a> ~ in general, you can google your state and "call before you dig"

    Boots gave you the number but there is an alternate one. It's "1-800 call before you dig or your a$$ and home might belong to someone else when you get the repair bill." :p

    1-800-They Better locate that fiber line or your going to owe someone $50,000.

    50K?? they doin' it cheap out there sounds like! 50K/min down sounds more like it unless it is just a dedicated fiber line to a very small buisness.

    I went upon the job oneday
    A trench to dig through mud and clay
    Down down I went where earthworms play
    And found some wires to my dismay
    So I did what I did for my house to stay
    I filled it in and ran ran away

    Hayes still has his frogman ready
    A rescue attempt, salvage, real steady
    He has to worry for an irrigators nightmare
    Is to have all the water and not one piece of pipeware
