Locating Underground Utility Lines

 Not all electric lines are visible; in fact, some are buried underground. Before digging or beginning any construction project at your house or farm, please call DigTESS (Texas Excavation Safety System) at least two days prior to beginning the project – it’s the law. DigTESS will visit your site and mark any underground lines, even those that do not belong to Big Country Electric Cooperative, to prevent you from making a costly or deadly mistake. Also, please notify us at BCEC so that we are aware of such projects and can provide service accordingly.


DigTESS: 1-800-DIG-TESS or 811
