Whether planting a tree, putting up a fence, landscaping or starting an excavation project, Greenville Utilities strongly encourages you to follow the law and call NC 811. This number is for homes and businesses alike. Even minor contact with a pipeline, causing a small dent, chip or crack, can lead to a natural gas emergency.
It’s a fact: Excavation work, including digging (even in the yard) and plowing, is the most common cause of natural gas emergencies. Before excavation of any kind takes place, North Carolina State law requires you to call NC 811. Please call at least three full working days in advance so all utility lines can be professionally marked prior to digging. Click here to learn more.
