Georgia 811 Information

Use any of the information below on your website to inform visitors about Georgia 811 and the services we provide.

About Georgia 811:

Georgia law mandates that, before beginning any mechanized digging or excavation work, you must contact Georgia 811 by using eRequest on or by calling 811 or 1-800-282-7411 at least 48 hours but no more than 10 working days in advance to have utility lines marked.

Georgia 811 is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to preventing damage to Georgia’s underground utilities and promoting public safety. We function as a communication system, connecting our member utility companies with professional excavators and homeowners who are planning mechanized digging activity such as excavation, tunneling, grading, boring and demolition.

Although it is not required by Georgia law to notify the Georgia 811 if a smaller, non-mechanized digging project is planned, we encourage residents to do so to ensure their personal safety and the safety of those around them. These projects can include installing a fence, deck, swing set or mail box; planting trees or landscaping.

This notification system provides Georgia 811 members an opportunity to locate and identify any underground facilities they may have in an area where digging is planned.

About eRequest:

eRequest is an online application form to start the locate request process for a single address. It will let you send GA811 the information necessary for us to process your locate request. We will review your request, determine the Member facility owner/operators to be notified and then get back to you with pertinent information about your request. You can access the eRequest form by visiting
