The MISS DIG 811 “Positive Response” program was originally introduced in 2003 with participation in the program voluntary for Facility owner/operators. Effective April 1, 2014, as defined in Sec. 3 (X) & detailed in Sec. 6 (3) & Sec. 7 (3) of Public act 174, participation by Facility owner/operators is now required


Positive response is a system housed at the MISS DIG 811 notification system that will allow Facility owner/operators or their authorized locating contractor to provide status of dig notices sent to them by MISS DIG 811. Once the Facility owner/operator or the locating contractor determines the status of the dig notice (such as no conflict or marked) they can then post that response to the system. The posted status is then attached to the dig notice and stored on the Positive Response server. The posted status can then be retrieved by the requester of the dig notice via the Internet, response.missdig.org or by using the interactive voice response (IVR) system via a touch-tone phone, 800-763-3888.

For the excavator (the requestor of the ticket), this means when a response status has been posted to the dig notice, the excavator will then be able to check the status of the dig notice prior to starting the work. The excavator can check the status by using the Internet option or by calling the IVR. The IVR option could also be used from the job site to determine that the absence of markings by a specific facility may be the result of a "Clear" provided by that member and posted to the Positive Response system.
