Call before you dig


In Massachusetts, we call “dig safe” before we can dig….the gas company will come out and mark where the gas line is located.

Via Tom Kollias (Kollias Property Inspections, Inc.):

If  you are planning home renovations that involve digging, it’s important to know where the underground utility lines are buried.

Whether it’s digging a hole for a mailbox or tree or installing a deck or pool, you can now call 811 from anywhere in the country to request a visit from a utility locator company.

They’ll then mark the location of your underground lines, pipes and cables, preventing accidential injury, service disruptions, and repair costs.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
