Notification Centers and stakeholders across the country are launching creative campaigns to promote safe digging for 811 Day, August 11. A few standout efforts this year include a $3,000 landscaping makeover offered by Texas811, a virtual scavenger hunt by Arizona 811, and a locally brewed “811 Pilsner” being rolled out by Okie 811!
Texas 811 launched a ‘Grow the 24’ (#Growthe24) campaign during Safe Digging Month to increase the number of Texans that know safe digging practices. According to a 2019 study of 505 Texas homeowners only 24% knew to contact 811 prior to digging. Visit www.texas811.org/growthe24 to learn more.
