The Florida "Underground Facility Damage Prevention and Safety Act" (Florida Statue 556.101-111) requires a call to SUNSHINE STATE ONE CALL 811 or 1-800-432-4770 at least 48 HOURS prior to any digging or excavation (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays). The information will be forwarded to the appropriate authority for underground utility line locations.
The call is free and the call center stays open 5 days per week, during normal business hours, excluding holidays. It is closed Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.
Someone will ask questions regarding the location of your planned excavation. A locate ticket will be issued to dig or excavate, 2 days after your request. Ample time is given to each utility owner in the area to respond and accurately locate his or her utility.
The Sunshine One-Call law applies to everyone, including home owners who may be excavating for a flag pole installation, landscaping, or other excavation activities.
Pipeline markers are placed at key locations where a gas pipeline crosses streets, driveways, etc. Our markers have phone numbers on them requesting excavators to call prior to digging in the area.
