“Every six minutes in the US, someone damages an underground utility line because of digging without calling 8-1-1 first,” said Vice President of Safety Bob Coates. “Striking a single line can cause serious injuries, as well as outages. Accidental dig-ins can happen anywhere utility lines are buried, from a backyard to a major construction site.”
Call Before You Dig (CBYD) governs safe digging practices in Connecticut, and Dig Safe governs safe digging practices in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Both offer a one-call system to locate and mark underground facilities that are near proposed excavation areas. By calling 8-1-1, homeowners and contractors are connected with CBYD or Dig Safe, which notify local utilities of any scheduled digging activities. Professionals then visit the property to mark utility-owned underground lines with flags and/or spray paint to indicate areas to be avoided.

Pavers for State Veterans Memorial to Honor Your Veteran
Connecticut’s first statewide veterans’ memorial pays tribute to the state’s past heroes and heroines, honors today’s veterans, and demonstrates the appreciation for their service for generations to come. It is a welcoming place for personal reflection, as well as a gathering place where groups can honor Connecticut veterans for their commitment and sacrifices. The impressive granite memorial is located in Hartford’s Minuteman Park on Capitol Ave. and Broad St., across from the William A. O’Neill State Armory and the Legislative Office Building. The outdoor memorial is open 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week and there is no admission fee.
Hundreds of 6” x 12” granite engraved pavers are important elements of the memorial, offering state residents a meaningful way to honor or memorialize a special veteran, and the funds raised have supported the memorial’s development. Only 150 of these 6” x 12” walkway pavers remain for engraving and installation. Each paver costs $200 and can be engraved with the name of a U.S. veteran, with his or her rank, branch of the military, and the specific years of service and conflict, if desired. For more information on purchasing a paver to honor your veteran, please visit www.CTHonorsVets.org
