Call 811 before you dig

When planning any outdoor work that involves digging or working near power lines, your first step should be to call 811, the number for Georgia’s Utilities Protection Center, or request an e-Ticket from the center by completing this online form.  It’s the law.

To avoid a potentially hazardous situation by digging into a power line or other utility, call 811 at least 48 hours before you begin your project. The 48 hours begins on the next business day after your request, excluding non-business days. Representatives of each utility will mark the location of existing lines with colored flags or paint so you can dig safely.
