Reporting any damage to any underground service, no matter how minor, is required by South Dakota law. Even a small nick can break down later and cause a gas leak, water leak or corrosion to electrical wires.
Report damages, dislocation, or disturbance of underground facilities to South Dakota 811 and the utility company, if known.
Immediately report escape of flammable, toxic or corrosive gas or liquid to 911, South Dakota 811, and the utility company, if known.
Do not attempt to repair any nicked or hit utility line.
