South Carolina 811
WHAT IS SOUTH CAROLINA 811?
South Carolina 811 is the call (or click) before you dig center for the state. Taylors Fire and Sewer District is a proud member of the South Carolina 811 program and is compliant with state law which went into effect on June 7, 2015.
Submitting a locate request to have underground utility lines marked is a free service to anyone doing large or small digging projects. SC811 does not physically mark the underground utility lines, but they will notify us and we are responsible for having the lines located. We will only mark the lines we have installed and maintain, which does not include privately owned lines. For a normal notice, the locate request must be entered into the South Carolina 811 system three full business days, not including the day the notice was submitted, before digging may begin.
Formed by member facility operators in 1978, Palmetto Utility Protection Service (doing business as South Carolina 811) currently operates under the Underground Facility Damage Prevention Act to protect buried facilities and keep excavators and the general public safe.
You can reach South Carolina 811 by dialing 811 within SC or calling their toll free number 888-721-7877 anywhere within the US. You can also submit a locate request online. They are available to take your locate requests Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 5:30pm, excluding holidays. We are open 24/7 for emergencies.
Safe digging is everyone’s responsibility. Notifying SC811 of your planned excavation can help prevent damages that can result in fines, utility service interruption and physical injury – even death. Please visit the South Carolina 811 website for more information.
