Add New Code Form
- Upon registration as a utility member with Texas811, you will be assigned a unique member code that is used to identify your company in our system, as well as on the outbound locate tickets sent to excavators and other utility members. You can choose to have just one member code that encompasses all of your assets, or, you can divide your coverage area into multiple groups, each with their own unique code. Texas811 allows an unlimited number of codes a member can utilize to identify their various assets. New codes can be created by simply completing our Add New Code Form and attaching the corresponding mapping files.
Below are a couple of examples of when you may want to set up multiple member codes:
- You have different geographical regions where different locators or contacts handle their own region
- You have multiple facility types (water, sewer, gas, electric, etc.) that may be handled by their own workforce or billing departments
Detailed Report Request
- To request information regarding the amount of locate tickets your company has received or if you need to request specific locate ticket data such as: ticket types, excavator information, who the work is being done for, the nature of work, and the location of work.
Extraordinary Circumstances Form
- An extraordinary circumstance is when your company is experiencing conditions that make it impractical to fully comply with your response time obligations, as detailed in Texas State Law Chapter 251.158.
- Extraordinary circumstances can be declared for as many member codes being affected by that circumstance.
- Extraordinary circumstances are most often weather-related conditions such as a hurricane or tropical storm, but other conditions can activate the use of extraordinary circumstances.
- You will continue receiving locate tickets as long as your receiving equipment is functioning. If not, the locate tickets will remain in queue at Texas 811's call center and will be delivered as soon as your equipment is working properly.
- Your member code and contact information will continue to be listed on tickets, so excavators are aware of your facility.
- Your specific message is also displayed on the excavator copy of the ticket informing them of the declaration of extraordinary circumstance.
- If you have a question about an invoice you received from Texas811, this form gives you direct access to our Accounting Department.
