Public vs. Private

First Call Locating Is your first call after NC811. “We start where 811 Stops”

Finally, the law requires you to call 811 and have your public utilities marked before you dig. However, public utility companies will only locate the facilities they own (utilities that run meter to main like electric, gas, oil, telephone, and water). So we mark the underground utilities and structures 811 does not.
