Mr. Diggs is my name, and safe digging is my game. 

But I haven't always been CoServ's safe-digging mascot. In fact, in my younger days, I was quite the opposite.

It took an encounter with a CoServ Gas Employee—aka The Armadillo Whisperer—to cure me of my wicked digging ways. After he caught me digging around a gas meter, he taught me all about Call 811—the nationwide campaign to promote safe digging. I learned that if you plan to dig more than 16 inches, you must Call 811. It won't just keep you safe and help you avoid hitting buried gas, electric, communication or sewer lines—it's the law!

You can find more details on our Safe Digging page.

I also provide regular updates on my Twitter feed at and on Instagram at—follow me today!
