Before digging or excavating for a project, Missouri law requires that a locate request be placed. The process is free and easy by calling 1-800-DIG-RITE (344-7483) or 811. You can also place your request online using Internet Ticketing through the Missouri One Call System. The utilities should respond to your request and mark the approximate location of their facilities within three working days. Please contact Superintendent of Utilities Darrell Dunlap at 573-592-3111 if you have any questions.
