Call Before You Dig 811


The Georgia Utility Facility Protection Act (GUFPA) was established to protect the underground utility infrastructure of Georgia. Your familiarity and adherence to this law is extremely important in assuring the safety of our underground facilities and the general public.

The GUFPA mandates that, before starting any mechanized digging, or excavation work, you must contact Georgia 811 at least 48 hours but no more than 10 working days in advance to have utility lines marked.

 For more information, contact Georgia 811 by calling 811 or visiting their website at
