Call Before You Dig This Spring/Summer


Want to Dig Safely?

To Avoid Hitting Public Utilities:

1.  Contact Georgia 811 at (available 24/7) or simply dial 811 at least three business days before you plan to dig.

2.  Wait for our member utility owners and operators to provide you with the "all clear."

3.  While respecting the flags and marks provided by the utility operators, you can begin to dig safely.

Why Georgia 811?

It is state law that all utility lines must be marked before any mechanized digging begins.  For your safety, we recommend contacting Georgia 811 for any project that breaks ground, including those using hand tools.  Having public utility lines marked by locators is free after contacting Georgia 811.  

Contact Georgia 811

If damage occurs, please report it immediately to Georgia 811 and the affected utility company.  Remember to always contact Georgia 811 prior to digging as you may be liable for damage costs to public utilities.  Questions?  Visit
