Before you dig, STOP ...811Eng ver RGB

GVEA is now a member of Alaska 811 Digline!

In certain areas of GVEA's system, underground electrical lines are used. Therefore, members working outside (installing fence posts or burying fuel tanks, for example) may be in for a serious shock. To avoid the risk of electrocution, plan out any excavation project before you begin working.

The first step is to notify 811 Alaska Digline of the proposed excavation. You can do that one of two ways:

Either way you submit, a "locate ticket" will be generated and forwarded to GVEA.

GVEA will respond within two (2) full business days (or up to 10 days in remote or unstaffed locations) after receiving the locate ticket. 

Note:  Digging

If you accidently damage a primary buried electrical line, STOP DIGGING IMMEDIATELY and call GVEA to report the incident at 452-1151 (option 1).
