By law, companies that own or operate underground utility lines must join one of the two one call centers in the state of New York (New York 811 and Dig Safely New York).

The New York 811 member network includes “participating members,” which are utility companies (e.g. water, sewer, telecommunications, natural gas), municipalities and others with a stake in protecting New York City and Long Island’s underground infrastructure. “Sustaining members” do not own underground facilities but have an interest in preventing damage to these buried structures.

Members meet annually to discuss relevant issues and concerns, outreach initiatives, damage prevention, safe digging and other matters. Many are also involved in our Damage Prevention Committee and/or Subcommittee, which were established to enhance relationships between excavators, utility companies, locate services and New York 811.
