Buried utilities could exist just about anywhere you dig. Homeowners and contractors can prevent damage to underground utilities and prevent service interruptions by calling TN811 at least three working days prior to excavating.
Using our service, excavators are able to notify operators of underground facilities of proposed excavations, to request that the underground facilities be marked before they dig.
TN811 gathers information from anyone planning to dig, processes it using using our GeoCall Ticket/Mapping system, then notifies underground utility operators that may have utilities in the area.
Partners In Protecting Everyone is a partnership between Tennessee811 & sponsoring gas pipeline & distribution utiliites in Tennessee.
The DIRT program collects critical information, analyzing the numbers and producing targeted recommendations to damage prevention stakeholders about how to best protect buried facilities.
Effective May, 2015, Tennessee has a new, modified Underground Utility Damage Prevention Act.
