Overhead Line Assistance via MISS DIG 811
MISS DIG 811 offers an overhead electric line assistance program, known as e-OHA (Overhead Assistance). Any individual who feels that they cannot maintain a safe clearance from overhead power lines on their job site, and would like to communicate their concern with the local utility provider, are encouraged to submit an e-OHA ‘ticket’ free of charge.
e-OHA will create a meeting request with local Electric Company personnel for single addresses only. The meeting times available are Monday-Friday, 9:00am-3:00pm.
After submission, users will be contacted by a MISS DIG 811 representative to schedule a meeting date and time that is at least 72 hours, but not more than 14 days in advance.
E-OHA is available at esuite.missdig811.org
