COVID-19 Pandemic Impact Statement

Kansas 811 continues to process locate requests. 

Please remember that Kansas law requires that excavators ALWAYS file a locate request with Kansas 811 for ANY digging that is being done, even during this national health emergency.

We would like to remind everyone that all facets of the excavating industry (whether an excavator, homeowner, facility owner, locating company or one-call notification system) are coping with the effects of the pandemic and, as a result, everyone’s resources may be affected. 

Please be aware that this may have an impact on the underground utilities’ ability to respond to all 811 excavation notification requests in a timely manner as defined by law.

Therefore, please make sure that ALL underground utilities have responded prior to digging, because it is possible there may be delays as companies deal with COVID-19.

Kansas 811 requests that you use ITIC for all your non-emergency requests whenever possible by going to www.kansas811.com. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

Stay safe and be well,
Kansas 811

Things to Remember:

When a meet is requested by an excavator, an affected operator shall make a reasonable effort to attend the meet at the proposed date and time, or contact the excavator before the meet and reschedule for a mutually agreed upon date and time.

Kansas 811 is available to assist you in optimizing Facility Operator notification areas.
