The Common Ground Alliance and Shell have teamed up for the fourth consecutive season to raise awareness for 811, the national “Call Before You Dig” hotline.
As in 2011, the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Dodge will carry the 811 logo during National Safe Digging Month in April. Due to the program’s success in previous seasons, the partnership will expand this year, with new Shell-Pennzoil driver AJ Allmendinger featuring the logo on his car during the Watkins Glen race, as part of National 811 Day on August 11. The logo will also run on the car during the final race of the season in Homestead, FL.
Every digging project requires a call to 811 – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. The quick and easy call will connect you with a local One Call Center operator who will record information about your dig location and notify the underground facility operators so they can mark the approximate location of underground utilities and pipelines. Once the lines are marked, you can begin to dig, but always dig with care.
