Locating Water & Sewer Lines
If you are planning to dig on your property where utility lines are buried (electric, water, sewer, telephone and natural gas), Florida state law requires that you notify the affected utilities at least two days prior to excavating. The utilities are required to locate their lines for you within two working days. This law was enacted to protect homeowners from possible serious injuries and from liability that can be incurred when you damage an underground utility line.
The Town of Davie Utilities Department is a member of Sunshine State One-Call of Florida. Please call 811 prior to beginning any excavation work. This number is operational Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. Sunshine State One-Call will notify all member utilities of your excavation project and request that these utilities locate their underground facilities in the area of your proposed project. Some utilities are not participating members of Sunshine State One-Call and would need to be contacted individually.
