Excavators

Excavators and contractors must call in their own ticket.

It is illegal to dig on someone elses ticket - even on the same construction site. Your scope of work on the ticket may vastly differ from the other excavators. Their ticket will NOT cover you in court. It's free... get on the internet and just do it.

Checklist:

Contact Miss Utility (internet, 800# or 811)

Provide contact and excavation information requested by the call center

Receive ticket number

Wait the required time for the utilities to dispatch their locators and mark their lines

Review the Ticket Check positive responses

Safely excavate AFTER all utilities have issues a positive response and cleared the ticket.
