Natural Gas Installation Standards Handbook
Accidents involving dig-ins to underground facilities occur every year. They can damage equipment, and more importantly, sometimes lead to serious injuries, even death. We want to reduce the number of accidents so we joined a One-Call-System designed to make it safer for you to dig and work near underground facilities. It's the Law! Call Before you dig! For your safety and protection, call for details on the location of underground electric wires, gas lines and communications cables. Call before you start your project to prevent damage to underground equipment and avoid personal injury, or find yourself with an unnecessary repair bill. So, remember to call our One-Call-Center before you start the job. A single toll-free telephone call can save you plenty! Before you start planning your project, please contact a representative at Orange & Rockland. We will be happy to provide you with information and assistance, as well as ways to save you energy and money. You can contact one of our New Construction Services Representatives at 845-577-3324.
