The MISS DIG System processes calls from persons planning to dig and informs its member utilities of these excavation plans. The member utilities then mark their underground public utility facilities. The MISS DIG System promotes safety on the job site, assists the utilities in providing safe and efficient service to millions of customers, preserves the environment, thereby ensuring quality of life for all Michigan residents.

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.
