Don't Forget: "Call Before You Dig"

Before beginning any large project which requires digging in Georgia, remember to call Georgia 811, a division of the Utilities Protection Center, Inc.

Georgia Public Service Commission regulates these projects in the state, and works to minimize any destruction to public utilities.  If you are planning on any digging in close proximity to homes, underground utilities or overhead high voltage power lines, you are required to call 811 to alert the utility providers of your project.

The utility providers will visit the project site to mark the utilities located within the dig site.  This is to ensure that no damage is done to the conduits for these utilities.
