Pennsylvania 811 Safe Digging Month

Pennsylvania 811 Safe Digging Month
New Bethlehem Borough – Mayoral Proclamation

Whereas, the month of April 2017 is recognized as Pennsylvania 811 Digging month across our commonwealth, and initiative supported by Pennsylvania 811, a utility notification information center celebrating its 45th year of continuous service to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and

Whereas, this unique service provides an easy to use one–call notification about excavation projects which may endanger workers and jeopardize utility lines while promoting workplace and public safety, reducing underground utility damage and minimizing utility service interruptions while protecting the environment, and

Whereas, the Pennsylvania one call system began with only six utility companies in Western Pennsylvania and now service more than 100,000 excavators and 3600 critical underground infrastructure owners throughout the Commonwealth, and

Whereas, the service annually receives more than 800,000 notification requests and transmits more than 6 million notifications, providing protection to utility companies, their employees, customers, and the general public, and

Whereas, economic development throughout New Bethlehem Borough and Pennsylvania is growing, and it is important to minimize the damage to underground utility lines, danger to workers, environmental pollution, and the loss of utility services, and

Whereas, we are thankful for the service provided by Pennsylvania 811 and encourage all residents, engineers, designers, excavators and homeowners to dial 811 at least three business days in advance of an excavation project such as planting a tree, installing a mailbox post, building a deck or swimming pool or replacing a driveway.

Now, therefore, be it resolved that New Bethlehem Borough does hereby proclaim April 2017 as “Pennsylvania 811 safe digging month” in New Bethlehem Borough.

Tim Murray,
New Bethlehem Borough Mayor
