Excavator Resources – What Do The Markings Mean?


When a utility member marks a location, they use colored flags and/or paint to identify the type of underground utility. Here is what the color codes indicate:

The Ticket Response System (PRIS) allows you to check your ticket status and the responses from the affected utility members. You may not proceed with excavation until all facilities are coded “marked,” “clear,” or similar code.
If there are obvious signs of an unmarked utility, contact Georgia 811 for an Additional Request then contact the utility directly. If you need further assistance, contact a Liaison Manager.
