Every nine minutes an underground utility line is damaged because someone decided to dig without calling 811 first. “NC811 is proud to sponsor Burt Myers Racing (BMR) while sharing the 811 message with those that love the sport of racing,” stated NC811’s Education Manager, Ann Rushing.
Since 1978, North Carolina 811 has provided a fast and easy communications link with local utility providers. The public provides NC811 information about excavation, NC811 transmits the information to utilities and they send out locators to mark underground lines for free. Call 811 or 1-800-632-4949 three working days before you plan on digging.
