CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Safe Digging Seminar will focus on issues and regulations regarding excavation work. Despite laws requiring a call to 811 for free information on the location of buried lines, excavators and homeowners continue to strike underground lines, often causing extensive damage, injuries, and even death. Knowing where buried lines are located is the first step to safe digging.  

There will be a mock trench collapse demonstration, a backhoe rodeo, equipment displays and door prizes.
