Georgia 811 is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to
preventing damage to Georgia's underground utilities and promoting
public safety. We function as a communication system, connecting
our member utility companies with professional excavators and
homeowners who are planning mechanized digging activity such as
excavation, tunneling, grading, boring and demolition.
Although it is not required by Georgia law to notify
the Georgia 811 if a smaller, non-mechanized digging
project is planned, we encourage residents to do so to ensure their
personal safety and the safety of those around them. These projects
can include installing a fence, deck, swing set or mail box;
planting trees or landscaping.
This notification system provides Georgia 811 members an
opportunity to locate and identify any underground facilities they
may have in an area where digging is planned.
Georgia law mandates that, before beginning any mechanized
digging or excavation work, you must contact Georgia
811 by calling 811 or 1-800-282-7411 at least 48 hours
but no more than 10 working days in advance to have utility lines
Professional excavators can use EDEN to enter and manage tickets
online. If you are not currently trained in using the EDEN
system visit our calendar for a list of available sessions.
