About Call 811

811 is the national toll-free telephone number that Congress enacted to prevent damages to underground utility lines caused by digging.

Call 811 at least three business days before you want to dig. You’ll reach an 811 call center, which will coordinate with Atmos Energy, your electric company and other utilities to mark all the utility-owned underground pipes and cables. Here's how it works: 

  • Call 811 to locate utility-owned pipelines and cables.
  • Utility lines are located and marked with color-coded flags.
  • Respect the flags by not digging close to them.
  • It’s free. It’s safe. And it’s required by law.

A call to 811 does not mark customer-owned lines or those inside buildings, except in Kansas. To identify those, contact a licensed plumber or qualified contractor.
