Georgia 811




Safe digging starts when you call Georgia 811. By law, everyone-including homeowners-must contact Georgia 811 by dialing  811 or 1-800-282-7411 at least 48 hours before beginning any mechanized digging on your property. If you are unsure as to whether you should notify Georgia 811 before you break ground, remember, even if your digging project is small, its always best to call!



This section of our Web site includes important safety information such as what to do before you dig; safe digging practices, what the color-coded markings mean, answers to frequently asked questions, and much more. In addition, Georgia 811 holds a number of public events to spread the word about our important mission. For a complete list, please see our events calendar. Our mascot, Digger Dog, is available for school and other educational organization appearances.
