Enertech holds gas line rupture demonstration in Lafayette, LA.

LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – A public event was held at the Blackham Coliseum to give demonstrations related to digging and excavation projects.

The event’s goal is stressing the public to dial 811 before breaking ground. Gas line ruptures from digging happen often and are dangerous situations.

Two demonstrations were given with the first showing the excavation team taking the right steps while the second demonstration showed the consequences of not locating underground facilities.

“You should always dial 811 before you do any digging, even if it’s planting a tree in your yard,” says Cole Vanderlick, who’s with Enertech.

Locating underground pipelines before digging can save both life and property.
