Oregon Law requires that anyone digging in private property or any public right-of-way call the One-Call Center prior to digging.  Everyone, contractor and homeowner alike, must call two business days prior to digging.  After the call is received, the One-Call Center will notify all affected operators.  The operators then have two business days to locate and accurately mark their underground facilities using color-coded paint.

To request locates for proposed excavation, you can reach the One-Call Center by dialing 811.

KNOW WHAT'S BELOW.  CALL 811 BEFORE YOU DIG.  IT'S THE LAW.
