CO 811 locatesColorado 811 has created a web page with updates on the COVID-19 impact on operations. Please keep in mind that as of March 24, 811 locates rules are still in effect. From the Colorado 811 website:

The Underground Damage Prevention Safety Commission is requiring all member facility owners/operators to respond to all excavation notices/tickets during the COVID-19 state of emergency. Please read their letter regarding COVID-19.

Colorado 811 understands that some organizations are closing their offices, still please keep in mind not only do members/facility owners need to respond to all tickets but they MUST in all cases respond to emergency and damage tickets (communication to the excavator and/or marks on the ground).

If a member/facility owner is impacted by COVID-19 and their organization is ONLY locating emergency and damage tickets, they must post a response for all other tickets using the code 015 EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCE. We will no longer automatically post the COVID-19  071 EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES response for members that close their offices. 

The Colorado One Call Law has not changed and all member facility owners/operators are required to mark all underground facilities. Not responding to excavation notices is a violation of Colorado One Call Law and may put people at risk of injury or may damage property.

Colorado 811 operations will not be impacted and we will still be accepting calls through 811 and online requests via our website
