Educational Resources

Welcome! We’re here to work for you.

Whether it be through continuing education, public outreach, or services provided by our state-of-the-art call center, we’ve got you covered.

Common Ground Alliance

The Common Ground Alliance (CGA) is dedicated to preventing damage to underground utility infrastructure and protecting those who live and work near these important assets through the shared responsibility of our stakeholders.

Join the CGA – our dedicated volunteers are working with industry stakeholders and regulators to produce stronger, more effective results through partnership, collaboration, and the pursuit of common goals in damage prevention.


Damage Reporting

*** Note: This is an annual data collection report for damages and near misses. This does not replace notifying the underground facility owner of a damage to a facility during excavation practices. Those should be reported to the facility owner directly and by contacting Alabama 811 through the normal locate request process. ***

Law & Enforcement

The Enforcement Program

The program is a complaint-driven process where a complaint may be submitted against an entity for violation of the Alabama Underground Damage Prevention State Law. A complaint may be submitted as information only and not designated for enforcement penalties.

Marketing & Promo Items

Help Raise Awareness!

Alabama 811 does more than just notify facility owners of proposed excavation activities. We are also a great resource for educational and promotional materials for all stakeholders involved in damage prevention.

We make available promotional handout items, advertisements, logo artwork, and other toolkits to assist with your damage prevention efforts.

In an ongoing effort to educate the public and contractors of the importance of calling before any digging project, Alabama 811 provides some materials at no charge.
