The city utility locators are responsible for locating all underground utilities owned by the city. Underground utilities include: Sewer, Water, Gas, and Power. The Georgia Utility Facility Protection Act requires that a contractor or individual preparing for subsurface investigation or excavation call the Utilities Protection Center at 811 or 1-800-282-7411 prior to any field activity. Once the UPC has been notified, a ticket is then generated for the target area, and it becomes the responsibility of the utility owner to locate the pertaining utility within 72-hours. After this time, the ticket becomes activated and construction is then permitted.
CALL BEFORE YOU DIG. IT'S THE LAW!
