Call 811 Before You Dig
Knowing where underground utility lines are buried before each digging project begins helps to prevent injury, expense and penalties. The depth of utility lines may vary and multiple utility lines may exist in one area. Simple digging jobs can damage utility lines and can disrupt vital services to an entire neighborhood, harm those who dig and result in expensive fines and repair costs. Marked lines show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences.
One easy phone call to 811 quickly begins the process of getting underground utility lines marked. 811 personnel will then notify affected utility companies, who will send crews to mark underground lines for free. For simple home improvement projects and even on private property calling 811 will save you time and hassle.

The Building Code, as adopted by Weld County, is dedicated to better building construction and greater safety for the public by uniformity in building laws. The Code is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials and new construction systems.
