Excavation Permits (Who is digging near my yard?)

Utility companies are constantly digging in new utility lines around the area. New lines for high-speed internet, telephone, fiber optics, cell phones, plus new gas lines and adjustments to water and electric lines cause contractors to open up the ground, install pits and boxes, and then install their utility. These are usually shorter projects and remain mostly in the grass areas. For an interactive map showing the active excavation permits in your area, please click here.

For questions regarding one of these permits, please call 636-379-5596.
