When it comes to stump removal, it’s important to consider the potential risks and take the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and successful process. One important step that is often overlooked is calling in a utility ticket before grinding a stump.
But why is this necessary? Here are a few reasons:
Safety: The most important reason to call in a utility ticket is to protect yourself and your property. Underground utility lines, including water, gas, communications, and electricity, can be damaged if you grind a stump without first knowing their location. This can cause costly repairs and dangerous outages.
Legal Requirements: Many cities and towns have laws and regulations in place that require homeowners to call for a utility ticket before doing any work that involves digging or disturbing the ground. Failing to do so can result in fines and other penalties.
Efficient Stump Removal: By calling in a utility ticket, you can ensure that the appropriate measures are taken to mark the location of underground utilities before you begin grinding the stump. This will save you time and hassle, as you won’t have to stop and start the grinding process to check for utility lines.
