Widespread damage caused by recent severe storm systems has left many Iowa communities without electricity and cell phone/landline telephone/Internet services. As utility locating technicians respond to a significant influx in emergencies, excavators may experience some locating delays. Whenever possible, please work with your locating technicians in order to coordinate reasonable and mutually agreeable scheduling alternatives.
As the potential impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, Iowa One Call will continue to actively monitor the status and report updates on this page. Our intent is to maintain a high level of service to our members and the excavating community while addressing the safety of our staff.
Changes to the way utilities (locators) use the "Agreed-To-Marking-Schedule" status code are in progress. Click the "Read More" button for more information on these changes and new requirements.
Most “normal farming operations” are exempt from Iowa One Call notification, but many other farming operations are NOT. Learn the differences here.
