Required Information

You will be asked several questions when you call the MISS DIG System, including:

  • Your name and phone number.
  • The contractor or person doing the work.
  • The geographical location‚ city, village or township and county‚ of the work area.
  • The address where the work will be done.
  • Nearest cross streets to the work location
  • The type of work being done. (For example, installing a fence or building a deck.)
  • Information about the excavation area that identifies the boundaries for the utility representatives. (For example, locate underground utility lines 100 feet from the north side of the house, locate underground utility lines in the entire yard, or locate underground utility lines in the front yard.)

Your MISS DIG System Ticket

Once your project information is received by the MISS DIG System, it is given a ticket number. At the end of your conversation, the MISS DIG System operator will give you that ticket number. Please keep your ticket number, in case you need to refer to it in the future.

The MISS DIG System member utilities (or their contractors) mark the approximate location of their underground public utility facilities with flags, paint or both using the Utility Color Code colors. MISS DIG DOES NOT MARK.


IF YOU CANNOT MAINTAIN A MINIMUM 10 FOOT CLEARANCE FROM ANY OVERHEAD ELECTRIC LINES WITH THE EQUIPMENT YOU WILL BE USING ON THE JOB, PLEASE LET THE MISS DIG OPERATOR KNOW. MISS DIG CAN REQUEST AN OVERHEAD ASSISTANCE APPOINTMENT FOR YOU WITH YOUR ELECTRIC COMPANY.

(Appointments must be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.)
