BENCO Electric Cooperative has many power lines buried underground. When beginning a project that requires digging or breaking ground, protect yourself and your property by calling Gopher State One Call at 811 or 800-252-1166, 48 hours prior to the start of the project.

This free-of-charge-service is required by the State of Minnesota and will locate underground utility lines that may be buried. Before contacting GSOC, please use the Locate Request Guide to be adequately prepared.
