Digging At Your Property at Lake Murray or in South Carolina?

South Carolina 811 is a FREE service to contact to have underground utility services
marked prior to anyone doing large or small digging projects.  Safe digging is everyone’s responsibility. Notifying SC811 of your planned excavation can help prevent damages that can result in fines, utility service interruption and physical injury – even death.  And, it's the law.

Every digging project requires a call to 811.  Hitting an underground utility line while digging can harm the environment,cause serious personal injuries, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially incur fines and repair costs.

You can reach South Carolina 811 by dialing 811 within SC or calling our toll free number 888-721-7877 or visit the website: 

For a normal notice, the locate request must be entered into our system three full business days, not including the day the notice was submitted, before digging may begin.  SC811 does not physically mark the underground utility lines, but notifies the member facility operators and they are responsible for having the lines located. Facility Operators only mark the lines they install and maintain, which does not include privately owned lines.

Diggin'?  Always contact first!

Great HOT DOGS in the Chapin/Lake Murray area

My "go to" place in the Ballentine/Hilton/Chapin area for great hot dogs and other good lunch specials is the Get-N-Go at 2101 Wessinger Road (U.S. Highway 76 in Hilton).   

Get in there thru the end of April (2015) and tell them (Sunny or Jaya) that you want the MEL COKER  HOT DOG SPECIAL and get two hot dogs, a regular sized bag of chips and a regular sized drink for only $5.  It's a Deal!  It's a great lunch!

They have other good food too - chicken, fish, pork chops, french fries and vegetables.

Stop in soon to see my friends at the Get-N-Go in Hilton (formerly the PDQ).
