One-Call Notification System Act

In 1994, the Nebraska Legislature passed a law called The One Call Notification System Act. It can be found in the Revised Statutes of Nebraska from Sections 76-2301 to 76-2330. The law states that everyone who excavates or disturbs the surface of the ground in the State of Nebraska, must first contact Nebraska 811 (formerly Digger's Hotline), 2 (two) business days in advance to have all underground utilities located. This legislation includes, but is not limited to: contractors, homeowners and personal property owners.

The number to call is 1-800-331-5666 or 402-344-3565 in the Omaha metro area. For more information view the One Call Act and also see Title 155, Chapter 2.
