April is National Safe Digging Month
and this is your friendly reminder from the City of Statesville
to call NC811
before beginning your outdoor project to protect underground utilities and yourself! 🤳
The mission of NC811 is to "promote damage prevention and safe digging through communication of excavation activities and to educate facility operators, excavators and the general public.
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. Member facilities have three full working days, starting at 11:59 pm the day the notice is given, to mark the locate area requested for their underground utilities or notify the excavator of no conflict in that area."
