Virginia 811 (VA811) is the not-for-profit organization created by Virginia’s utilities to protect their underground facilities.
- An individual or company is planning to excavate.
- A ticket request is made online OR a call is made to VA 811. This is easy and no cost to the excavator/homeowner!
- The ticket is electronically delivered to member utilities. Member utilities mark their facilities or employ a contract locator to perform their locates. The locator responds to our electronic system and a response is sent to the excavator/homeowner.
