Call Before You Dig

Always call 811 before you dig!

By state law, anyone digging in Kansas must call Kansas One Call to have all utility lines marked before digging takes place. One easy phone call to 811 gets your underground utility lines marked for free!

The person who is doing the work is responsible for calling KOC.  If the owner contracts with a professional excavator to do the excavation then the professional excavator is responsible for calling KOC.  You will need to provide information about the work site when you call 811.

“Kansas One Call” is the underground utility notification center for the state of Kansas.  Through this facility, a person can notify operations of underground facilities of proposed excavations to request that the underground facilities be marked before they dig.

 

Consequences of Not Calling

  • Injury to you or your family
  • Damage to your property
  • Utility service outages to the entire neighborhood
  • Potential lines and repair costs
