Ferrellgas is reminding its customers this spring to practice safety when tackling outdoor projects, especially when it comes to locating utility lines before digging into the ground.

To locate utility lines, homeowners can call 811 or refer to a state-by-state map at to learn about the regulations in their area. Homeowners can schedule an appointment with a representative who will mark their utility line.

Propane isn’t always considered a utility if it’s located on private property, Ferrellgas notes. Some states may require homeowners to contact their propane provider to help locate the lines.

In a news release, Rufus Youngblood, director of safety at Ferrellgas, encourages customers making improvements to their yard “to make that quick phone call. A few minutes on the phone can make a big difference when it comes to the safety and success of your project.”
