It's true; nothing compares to the Iowa State Fair! This year we are using iconic fair foods to promote the safe digging message. We need your help!
Before taking a bite of your fried (or healthy) delicacy, spell out “811” and snap a quick photo to enter our photo contest! With no shortage of food on a stick and circular items at the fair, it is easy to spell out "811." For example, you might stack two funnel cakes to form an "8" while using two corn dogs to make the "11."
Get creative and submit your photo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #iowaonecall. All entries must include at least one food item, but other state fair items can be used to help create “811.”
Prizes include duffel bags, Bluetooth speakers, apparel, coolers, tumblers and more! Experience the thrills from August 10-20. Join us in the Varied Industries Building at booth #306.
Why 811? Iowa law requires at least 48-hour notice before digging. To create a ticket you can dial 811 or click at iowaonecall.com. Let’s have some fun with the 811!
Whether you're trenching in a field, planting a tree or digging a foundation, Iowa law requires everyone to locate underground utilities before digging. First, notify Iowa One Call to begin the process, then wait 48 hours (excluding Saturday, Sunday and legal holidays) BEFORE any digging begins. Call or click before you dig. This service is FREE and it's the law.
It's Holiday Season!
Any person planning to engage in projects that will entail digging, excavating, or disturbing the earth, are required to provide notice to IOC at least 48 hours prior to the commencement of digging/excavation, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays.
