The Texas811 Homeowner Portal is open for business!
Now you can truly “do it yourself” when it comes to making a call to 811 to get underground lines and cables located before you do work around your house.
The Texas811 Homeowner Portal is located here: www.texas811.org/homeowner
Homeowners can now fill out the request form online with an easy-to-use question/answer format. Like the rest of Texas811’s services, it’s available 24/7/365. The Homeowner Portal improves safety and damage prevention as its “ease-of-use” encourages more homeowners to participate in the 811 program.
Did you know that in the first half of this year, some 25,000 homeowners have already called in for locates on their property?
Among the new Homeowner Portal features are the following:
- Request your locate online at your convenience
- Easy-to-use question and answer format
- Satellite imaging makes it easy to find your property
- Straightforward mapping tools allow you to mark your work area
- Questions? Online chat available Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm
And of course, like every other 811 service to any other excavator, the Homeowner Portal is free of charge!
So, feel free to make that call to 811 and then get out there and plant a tree or put up a fence – AFTER your lines are marked, of course!
And, oh yes – it’s SUMMER for sure in Texas now.
Once your lines are marked and you’re working, drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen and take frequent breaks!
