New Mexico One Call was established in 1990 to provide professional damage prevention resources for excavators and homeowners statewide. We offer a toll-free call center for dig notification and free safety seminars to train excavators on dig safety. Whether youre digging a few inches or several feet, the law requires you to call before you dig its free and its the law!

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.
