Project Design

If you are not excavating within the next 14 calendar days a ticket cannot be submitted since the project is in the design phase. To acquire infrastructure information/ location for design purposes, the engineering department of each utility operator must be contacted. USA North 811 provides the Utility Member Contact Lookup tool free of charge. Please use the button below to generate a list of design/engineering contacts.

Mission & History

Mission Statement

To cultivate public safety and damage prevention by creating cohesive lines of communication between excavators and utility operators. Our vision of transparency and fluidity is streamlined by exceptional customer service and public education. We aim to surpass One Call industry best practice standards and inspire inclusive participation from stakeholders.


USA North 811 began operation in May of 1975 & incorporated as a 501 (c)(6) Non-Profit Mutual Benefit Corporation in 1986. Our objective is to receive planned excavation reports from public or private excavators and to transmit those planned excavation reports to all participating utility members of USA North 811 who may have facilities in and around that excavation site. Our members will either: 1) mark or stake the horizontal path of their facility, 2) provide information about the location of their facility, or 3) advise the excavator of clearance, for facilities that they own.
