Call before you dig.

Call before you dig!

Safe digging is everyone’s responsibility…

Safe digging starts when you contact Alabama 811 either with a direct call, the internet web portal, or the mobile application. per Alabama law, everyone, including home-owners, must contact Alabama 811 at least two working days prior to the start of any excavation project, no matter how small or how large. This is true especially if you are using any type of mechanized equipment. If you are unsure whether you need to notify Alabama 811 prior to starting your job, remember it is always best to call. Calling 811 is a free service.

To contact Alabama 811, you can simply dial "811" from anywhere in Alabama. If you are calling outside of Alabama you can reach us on our toll free number 800-292-8525. You can also use our ​Homeowner Locate Request link​ or download our Alabama 811 mobile application at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Key things to remember:


APWA Uniform Color Code
Tolerance Zones

The marking guide from the American Public Works Association provides for a universal use and understanding of the temporary marking of underground facilities.

Use of color-coded surface marks (paint, chalk, flags etc) is to indicate the location and route of buried facilities. All marks should indicate the name, initials or logo of the company that owns or operates the lines to help determine the proper facility owner if needed. If the width of the facility is greater than 2” (5mm) then it is good to indicate the width. If the surface above the buried facilities is to be removed, such as asphalt removal, then supplemental offset marks may be used. Offset markings should be on a uniform alignment and must clearly indicate the actual facility specific distance.

Proposed excavations can be marked with white to show the location or boundaries of the proposed excavation.
