Digging Soon? One Number From FCC

April 2009 Vol. 64 No. 4

The 811 number is a national “Call Before You Dig” phone number designated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to eliminate the confusion of multiple “Call Before You Dig” numbers and help save lives by minimizing damages to underground and overhead utility lines.

Most states have adopted the new 811 number to help connect you directly to the local one call center. However, every state has different rules and regulations governing digging, some stricter than others. In addition, 62 separate One Call Centers serve different areas of the country. A complete list of service numbers are provided here for fast, easy reference.
