During this time of state and national emergency, Nebraska811 has taken steps to ensure normal business operations continue. However, due to the strain on the workforce availability, there may be significant delays in utility response to locate requests while they focus on maintaining safe, reliable service. While all locate requests will be processed, we encourage you to only submit tickets that you fully intend to excavate on within the next 2-10 days. Additionally, please confirm that all utilities listed on your locate request have provided a status before beginning excavation. We appreciate your cooperation to help ensure continued public safety and sustainable utility service during these difficult times.
Nebraska811 is a FREE service for anyone who is planning a digging project, including homeowners and professional excavators. Nebraska State law requires anyone who digs to place a locate request at least two full business days before digging. Once your request is submitted, utilities will locate and mark their lines.
By placing a call or an online request with Nebraska811, damage to underground utility lines can be prevented as well as costs for repairs, loss of use and injury. It’s FREE. It’s EASY. It’s the LAW.
Locate requests are placed by calling 811 or 800-331-5666, or by selecting one of the applicable buttons to your right.
Please Note: For private utility lines, it is the owner’s responsibility to determine their location. Utilities will NOT locate and mark privately owned lines.
