3.15 811 Center Accepts Notifications from Designers

Practice Statement:

The 811 center accepts design requests and has the ability to process them as designated by the facility owners/operators.

Practice Description:

To facilitate damage prevention, project designers have a need for access to facility location information from facility owners/operators. If a design request is received, the 811 center provides a listing of facility owners/operators directly to the designer. Once the list is identified, the 811 center processes the request as designated by each facility owner/operator.
