Happy National Safe Digging Month! We have exciting stats to report from last month: March is now our highest notice month on record with 84,649 notices, which beat our previous highest month of August 2016 (80,766 notices).

The SC811 Academy Online Training Program is now available. This program is made up of 12 modules which cover the SC Underground Facility Damage Prevention Act and how to work safely around buried utilities. If you pass the 60 question final exam, you will receive a training certificate.

Changes to Update Notice Process

SC811 is excited to announce an improved process for Update Notices that was implemented on March 1, 2017. This process adjusts the Work Date to match the Expiration Date of the previous notice. This alleviates the need for excavators to have to wait until exactly the 12th day to update. It also removes wasted overlapping locate days, which maximizes the excavation time period between the two notices. Click here for more information. 

Dig Holes, Win Prizes!

Gary the Gopher is back for another year of fun and prizes. You can dig a virtual hole every day during the month of April for a chance at winning some cool prizes, like an apple watch, ipad, amazon gift card, and much more!
