The Mississippi One-Call System, (MOCS), is a computerized information center located in Jackson which establishes a statewide communications link between those who dig underground (excavators) and those who own and operate underground facilities (operators) in Mississippi. The information center is funded by a non-profit Mississippi corporation, Mississippi One-Call System, Inc., (MOCS, Inc.). Members of MOCS, Inc. are operators engaged in the communications, Gas Transmission, Gas Distribution, Electric Power, Products/Pipeline, Municipal Gas/Water/Sewer, cable TV, and other industries.

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.
