Call Before You Dig, Georgia 811

Safety


 

Digging Safety

811 is the national “Call Before You Dig” phone number. It was created to help prevent people from coming into contact with underground utility lines during digging projects. Contact can mean shock, injury or even death.

  • The first step in safe digging is to call 811. In Georgia, it’s the law. Make sure to call 811 three business days before a digging project, no matter how small. 

  • Make sure to tell the operator where you plan to dig and what type of work you will be doing. The 811 operator will route you to a local utility locating service.

  • After calling 811, a professional will come to your digging location to mark with flags and/or spray paint the areas where public utility lines are buried, free of charge. 

  • Download the Georgia 811 EDEN app to view, respond to and check the status of locate requests from your iPhone.
