SC811 is South Carolina’s first stop for underground facility damage prevention.

Becoming a member with SC811 is the first step in creating a safe working environment for those involved with digging/excavating anywhere in South Carolina.

SC811 provides the communication between the member utility companies and anyone with intent to excavate using voice or web. The service is free to the excavator giving incentive to notify SC811 of their digging intent. Once information is taken and mapped using the SC811 call center application a locate request notification is sent out to the affected SC811 members. Upon receiving the notification request the members with assets in the area will send personnel to locate and mark their underground facilities in the area of the excavation site.

The video below details the benefits of SC811 membership from actual facility owners.
