Dig Safe

All Dig Safe requests for excavation occurring on UNH Property must be submitted through the UNH Dig Safe office.  Once UNH Dig Safe receives the proper Dig Safe paperwork, the UNH Dig Safe Administrator will submit the request to the Dig Safe Call Center and a permit number and start time (at least three business days from date of submittal) will be returned to the requestor. Contractors, Sub-Contractors, and Excavators working on campus should follow these procedures when working on campus.  Contractors, Sub-Contractors, and Excavators should work with their UNH Facilities Project Management Contact to obtain the Dig Safe Number and start date for excavation or dig safe activies related to a project.  

For a complete overview of UNH Dig Safe Policy, Please see Attachment A - DIG SAFE-UTILITY DAMAGE PREVENTION PROGRAM of the Facilities Planning, Design and Construction Guidelines. (Chapter 5, Division 1, 011000)
