Iowa One Call: Dig Safely with Free Locate Requests

Effective March 1st, Iowa One Call is enhancing the tracking of cancelation tickets. The new process will use the existing ticket number when a cancelation is issued. Currently, a new ticket number is issued for cancelations making the tracking and processing of cancelation tickets difficult. The new method should reduce delays and streamline the process.

New Scheduling Tool May Help Reduce Locating Delays

Excavators can select alternative excavation start times at the time of notice. Extending the start time of an excavation can help reduce locating delays. The process is a voluntary option to the required (default) 48-hour start time.
