ALWAYS CALL 811 BEFORE YOU DIG!
IT'S FREE, IT'S EASY, AND IT'S THE LAW!
CALL 811, OR (800) 351-1111
One easy phone call to 811, starts the process of having your underground utility lines located for FREE.
We accept locate requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Buried utilities could exist just about anywhere you dig. Homeowners and contractors can help prevent damage to underground utilities and prevent service interruptions by calling TN811 at least 3 working days prior to excavating.
TN811 gathers information from anyone who is excavating, processes it using our GeoCall Ticket/Mapping system, and notifies underground utility operators that may have utilities in the area. The owners of the utilities then send personnel to locate and mark/identify their utilities.
All member utilities are required to notify Tennessee 811, that the operator (the member utility) has marked the approximate location of its underground facilities.
