FLEC Joins Tennessee811 on Jan. 1

1/6/2016

Tennessee law requires that you give 72 hours notice (excluding weekends and holidays) to Tennessee811 before your digging begins. Starting Jan. 1 Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative members should call Tennessee811 in order to locate underground utility lines. By making this free call to Tennessee811, they will notify all member utilities like FLEC of your project and each utility will locate their lines free of charge. FLEC no longer provides locate tickets. Now, simply call 811 or 1-800-351-1111 before you dig. After answering a few questions about your location, you will be given a ticket number and a verbal list of utility companies that will be notified of your project. Damage prevention is a shared responsibility. Always call 811 before you dig.
