  • 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

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 811 DOES NOT MARK.
