How to Update KY 811 Member Notification Areas & Maps

Kentucky 811 understands how important of a role up-to-date member notification areas and base maps play in keeping our state’s underground infrastructure safe from excavation-related damages. Because of this, we’ve worked with One Call Concepts (OCC) to make the process for updating both notification area polygons and base maps easier than ever before.

In your email, please include your state, district code, and whether the polygons should replace an existing notification area or if they are new additions.
