MISS DIG Services

MISS DIG offers many programs and services to its members and excavators who frequently place tickets.

Design Ticket

The purpose of the design ticket program is to open the lines of communication between Designing Firms and Facility Owners/Operators.

Overhead Assistance

If an excavator cannot maintain a minimum 10 foot clearance from any overhead electric lines with the equipment they will be using on the job, please let the MISS DIG operator know when placing the locate request. Contact our call center at 811 or 800-482-7171.
