Why Do I Need to Contact 811?

Not contacting Kentucky 811 can lead to inconvenient utility service outages, along with an exorbitant repair bill, serious injury, or even death. That’s why contacting Kentucky 811 before you dig is mandated by state law.

The 811 Process

Locate requests require waiting at least two full working days before breaking ground – this excludes Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.*

Private Utilities

After submitting a locate request, Kentucky 811 will be sent to member utilities that own facilities in the area of your dig site. You are responsible for contacting non-members and having any private lines on your property marked. Private utilities may include lawn sprinkler systems, security lighting, or natural gas grills. A private locator must be hired to mark private lines.
