NATIONAL SAFE DIGGING MONTH
The City of Laurinburg Fire and Public Works Departments are participating in the 2016 National Safe Digging Month Campaign. The month of April is recognized across the United States as National Safe Digging Month. This year, Fire Departments across the U.S. have been asked to help support this years' campaign. Louis Panzer, Executive Director of NC811, is asking fire stations across the state to show their support during the month of April by reminding their community members to call North Carolina 811 at “811” before any digging project – large or small. One free call to 811 three full working days prior to digging starts the process of having underground utility lines marked. This simple call reduces the chance of diggers unintentionally striking a utility line (gas, electric, communications, water or sewer) and causing inconvenient outages, harm to themselves or someone else, and/or repair costs.
PUBLIC NOTICE - LEAK TEST
The City of Laurinburg will be conducting a leak test in the sanitary sewer system by blowing smoke into these pipes. This smoke will reveal sources of sewer odors in your neighborhood as well as places where storm and other surface waters are entering the sanitary system. Click here for more information.
