Membership – What To Expect

Become a Member of Georgia 811

Georgia 811 Membership is required for any Facility owner or operator. Defined by the Georgia Utility Facility Protection Act under § 25-9-3. Definitions (15) a “Facility owner or operator” means any person or entity with the sole exception of a homeowner who owns, operates, or controls the operation of a utility facility.

Member Benefits

By removing the burden of direct contact from excavators and homeowners to utility service providers, Georgia 811 provides a streamlined free service that results in increased instances of notification before digging. What does that mean for members? It means more opportunities to mark utility facilities before digging occurs, resulting in fewer damages.

Georgia 811 members receive notification when excavation is planned in their service area and members are then able to coordinate locate technicians to properly mark their underground utilities. This helps excavators avoid utility damage and thus costly facility repairs. In addition to facilitating the notification process for members, Georgia 811 also provides training opportunities and support via the Customer Connections and Liaison Departments.
