KENTUCKY 811 is a non-profit statewide utility notification service that provides a communication link between contractors, homeowners, or anyone else engaging in excavating activities and our members. We offer a one point contact to reach our members to notify them of your proposed excavation for the locating and marking of their underground facilities. KENTUCKY 811 will notify only member utilities; contact of non-member utilities is the responsibility of the excavator or person doing the digging.

The One-Call System does not mark utilities. The One-Call system only notifies participating member utilities. These participating member utilities will not mark private or non-member utilities. The utility locating companies notified will locate and mark only primary public utilities, so it's up to you to keep track of what else is on your own property.

Private Utilities are the buried lines after the meter or main lines. If you have a curbside meter then your property will not get marked by the participating member utility locators. Other buried utilities that generally are not marked include but may not be limited to: sewer lines, private lighting, sprinklers, fire mains, secondary electric lines to detached garages, and septic lines.
