Call before you dig

    • As a reminder, producers needing to bury livestock that were lost in the wildfires that took place December 15 should call Kansas 811 before digging. Kansas 811 is the underground utility notification center for the state of Kansas. Using their services, you can notify underground utility operators of proposed excavation and request that their facilities are marked before you dig. For more information, click here
