REMINDER: the MISS DIG 811 System serves as a message handling notification service for underground facility owners. MISS DIG 811 takes information about your planned excavations and distributes that information to its members. It is then the responsibility of each facility owner to mark the approximate location of their underground facilities at the excavation site.
