CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

In honor of National Safe Digging Month, utility companies are reminding you to call 811 before you dig.

According to Alliant Energy, when you call 811 utility companies are told where and when you want to dig.

You should call at least two days before digging to give the utility company time to go out and mark where utility lines are so you won't hit them when you dig.
