  • Who is North Carolina 811?

    Today, more and more of the utility companies that supply your home or business with power, heat, water, telephone, sewer, gas and cable television service are delivering those services underground. It is also possible that these buried service lines are close to the surface, making digging a dangerous endeavor. Fortunately, you can find out where public utility-owned lines are buried on your property by contacting 811 either by phone or online. NC811 will notify our member utility companies of your excavation needs and those utilities will have professional locators mark their buried lines, free of charge.

    North Carolina 811, is a non-profit organization funded by its member facilities. We take locate information from anyone engaged in excavation activities. An excavator may include contractors, utilities, and homeowners. The information about proposed excavation is transmitted to the member facility owners that provide service in the requested excavation area. We have a variety of member facility owners including utilities, municipalities, universities, and homeowner’s associations.

    North Carolina 811 provides a toll free number, 1-800-632-4949, that can be reached from anywhere in the continental United States or you may dial 811 within North Carolina. North Carolina 811 does not mark utility lines; we do provide an easy communication link between excavators and utility owners.
