Who we are. Who we serve. What we do.
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 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.
