South Dakota 811 Members and Excavators:
We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 and the impact here in South Dakota. South Dakota 811 would like to assure everyone that its first priority during these uncertain times is the safety of everyone involved.
Thankfully, we have the ability to continue operating by receiving and processing calls. Our on-line Portal is operational and the entire 811 Center staff is available to answer any questions and to address any concerns.
Most employees at the 811 Center are telecommuting from home this week, and the Center is actively working to ensure the remainder of its employees will soon have the same ability to work from home.
South Dakota 811 plays a critical role in public safety, and we understand our members and excavators are counting on us to protect their infrastructure and keep everyone safe. South Dakota 811 will keep our operations going and continue with our mission.
You can be assured that we will be able to provide the same level of service as always and we are here ready to help in any way.
We’d like to remind everyone that contacting 811 before you dig and locating buried facilities within the required timeframes are still required.
