A community is “a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common”, or “a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals”.
At Texas811, we hope to build that sense of community.
The excavation community is made up of many parts, and they’re all meant to work together. We are utility owners and operators, stakeholders, line locators, excavators, landowners, homeowners, and one-call center employees. When we pull together in the same direction, we move forward. We make damage prevention and public safety possible.
How do we get there?
- A community communicates. If you plan to dig, dial 811 or go online at texas811.org to process a free line locate request. We also communicate well by making sure to provide good contact information, every time.
- A community cooperates. Know your duties. Check out Chapter 251 HERE and Administrative Code Chapter 18 HERE
- A community cares. They look out for one another. If you find incorrect information on a line locate request, dial 811 or use our Locate Request Concern Form HERE to let others know. This can affect the safety of everyone involved.
Texas811 invites you to partner with us in building a stronger community.
Until next time, safe digging!
