Attention Town of Gorham Residents & Contractors Working in the Town of Gorham
ATTENTION TOWN OF GORHAM RESIDENTS & CONTRACTORS WORKING IN THE
TOWN OF GORHAM
Due to the overwhelming number of excavations taking place in the Town of Gorham without notifying Dig Safe, we feel the need to reiterate that any excavation by machine or by hand is REQUIRED BY LAW to first contact Dig Safe. This includes excavations on private property. The Gorham Water & Sewer Department has spent an excessive amount of time and money this summer repairing broken shut offs and gate valves, and marking out our utilities at a moment’s notice.
Any further Dig Safe violations will be reported to the Public Utilities Commission as they are responsible for issuing the penalties and fines for violations of the Dig Safe Laws.
Dig Safe is FREE and can be contacted by dialing 811 at least 72 business hours before excavating.
