But don’t get ahead of yourself. First, you need to call 811 to have utility lines marked. Tell the operator where you’re planning to dig and what type of work you’ll be doing. The affected local utilities will send a locator to your property, free of charge. Then you’ll know what’s below and be able to dig safely without causing damage.

HOW TO SAVE A WET SMARTPHONE You’re enjoying time at the pool or beach and drop your phone into the water. Don’t panic! Here are the steps you need to take: 1. Dry it thoroughly with a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth. 2. If the phone is on, switch it off. If it’s switched off, leave it off. 3. Gently shake your phone to remove any water in the headphone port, charging socket, and other ports. 4. Leave your phone in a dry inside area with good airflow (such as a fan) to reduce the moisture. This may take a week or so. Do not put your phone in a bowl of rice, which is an internet myth, since rice can cause further damage. 5. Once dry, switch on your phone. If it works, back up your data immediately, in case it stops working again. If it still doesn’t function properly, consult a professional for repairs.
