Before You Dig

Tennessee’s Underground Utility Damage Prevention Act (TCA 65-31-101) requires everyone who digs to contact Tennessee 811 at least 3 working days’ notice before starting a project. Tennessee 811 processes the notification of proposed excavation and notifies their member utilities, or their contract locators, to mark their underground facilities prior to the excavation.

This free service helps prevent damage incidents which can result in millions of dollars in property damage, the interruption of utility service, personal injuries, and even loss of life.

Remember, there’s more than dirt in the ground.
