The next legal holiday that affects start dates is Christmas Day, December 25, 2013. As a result, Wednesday, December 25 will not count towards the three working days needed between contacting Diggers Hotline and starting your excavation.
After Christmas Day, the next legal holiday that affects start dates is New Year's Day, January 1, 2014.
Diggers Hotline is bound by state statute to recognize the legal holidays in Wisconsin. It is not our decision which holidays to recognize or when to recognize them. For a list of legal holidays in Wisconsin, click here.
Diggers Hotline is Wisconsin's one-call center. Anyone in the state who is digging, excavating or disturbing the soil is required by law to contact Diggers Hotline at least three working days before beginning work.
