Positive Response: When You Can Dig Early


All excavators are required by law to check PRS before digging. Be proactive and check PRS early through Sunshine 811’s app or at sunshine811.com. If all utilities clear your dig site or use a code that doesn’t require additional action, you may be able to begin digging early. [s.556.105(9)(c)].

You can dig before the required time has expired if all members listed on your ticket have responded to PRS and you have taken care of any special instructions left by any members. Marked codes with exceptions may have an additional step. See the individual code for instructions.

At the end of two or 10 full business days, directly contact any members that have not responded [s.556.105(9)(c)].
