Maui Electric Company reminds customers to call 811 before doing any excavation work at home.

This national number will connect callers to the Hawaiʻi One Call Center (also available by calling 1-866-423-7287). This free service can help to locate or mark any underground utility lines – including electric, gas, water, sewer, telecommunications, and cable.

Maui Electric advises that customers should call the Hawaiʻi One Call Center at least five days prior to digging.

The call center operates 24/7 and will alert Maui Electric so the company can mark or indicate the underground pipeline path, provide information about the route or give clearance to dig.
