Holy Cross Energy donates truck to local Call 811 organization

In honor of National 811 Day, observed each year on Aug. 11, Holy Cross Energy has donated a used 2007 GMC pickup truck to the Pitkin Eagle Garfield Damage Prevention Council, a 501(c)3 charity based in Glenwood Springs with the mission of keeping people safe, reducing damages to underground facilities and promoting the use of the One-Call system throughout Pitkin, Eagle and Garfield counties.

This truck will help the charity to fulfill its purpose and will be used for things like transporting Call 811 educational items to local trade shows, festivals and parades.

Call 811 education is important to Holy Cross because the utility has close to 1,800 miles of underground power lines. People that plant a tree or dig in their yard without calling 811 first are putting themselves and their property at risk.

A call to 811 before digging triggers a service that requires utilities to determine the location of underground facilities like electric, gas and telecommunication lines. Calling 811 before you dig is actually required by Colorado law.
