Call Before You Dig

The Utility Notification Center (Dial 811) is the one-call agency dedicated to safeguarding citizens and construction personnel who work around utilities, as well as safeguarding the underground infrastructure of pipes, mains and lines which bring utilities to your community.

Calling before beginning any excavation prevents damage to underground facilities, service interruptions, and bodily injury.

The Utility Notification Center is open 24 hours a day, every day, and accepts calls from contractors, homeowners, or anyone planning to dig in Oregon, Washington, Montana and Hawaii. Calling before you dig ensures that any publicly owned underground facilities will be marked according to the APWA color code so that you can dig safely.
