Before You Dig

If you’re doing any digging within the state of Florida, state law requires you to notify Sunshine State One Call of Florida (SSOCOF) 2 business days before you dig. For more information, call 800-432-4770.

Color Codes
Before digging or construction can begin, it is necessary to mark underground utility lines using color codes. Safety Harbor marks water and wastewater service lines and mains for other construction companies/residents. This prevents damage to our lines during construction. Other utilities may use a private company to mark their lines. The following is an explanation of the marking color codes used:
  • White - Proposed Excavation
  • Pink - Temporary Survey Markings
  • Red - Electric Power Lines, Cables, Conduit and Lighting Cables, Gas, Oil, Steam, Petroleum or Gaseous Materials
  • Orange - Communications, Alarm or Signal Lines, Cables or Conduit
  • Blue - Potable Water
  • Lavender - Reclaimed Water, Irrigation and Slurry Lines
  • Green - Sewers and Drain Lines
