811 is a FCC-designated national N-11 number for homeowners and professional excavators to call before digging. 811 calls in Tennessee are directed to the Tennessee One Call Center and the affected utilities who will then mark underground lines for free. The national 811 campaign will increase awareness among the public about the importance of having utility lines marked before digging. Digging without calling can lead to severe consequences including harm to those who dig, costly damages to underground infrastructure and utility service disruptions.

Make sure you call 811 no matter how small the job.
