Before starting any underground excavation, Sunshine 811 must be called at 811 or 800-432-4770. Sunshine then calls all utilities to mark their underground utilities. The Engineering Division has locators who respond to all requests to prevent damage to our buried water and wastewater lines
Call Before You Dig!!
Sunshine 811 is Florida's one-call center charged with helping prevent damages to underground utilities. To do this, it educates excavators on calling 811 and answers that call so utility companies know about your digging project. For the excavator, calling 811 helps prevent hefty fines and repair costs due to utility service outages, injuries, environmental contamination, and property damage.
