Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. If there are no overhead power lines in your neighborhood, you may have a green metal utility box mounted on a small concrete or fiberglass pad in your yard. Crews need access to the inside of the box to repair and maintain underground electric facilities. Do not landscape within 10 feet of the access door or within three feet of the remaining sides. If you choose to landscape near this box, it is imperative to CALL 811 BEFORE YOU DIG.
