State Law
South Carolina Underground Facility Damage Prevention Act
Effective June 7, 2012
The South Carolina STATE LAW requires that excavators give 3 full working days notice (not including the day of the call) excluding weekends and holidays, for the locators to get out to mark the area. After a notice has been processed, you will know when you are legally free to proceed with the digging work and which utilities in the area SC811 will be notifying for you.
