The Indiana Underground Utility Facilities Damage Prevention Act has been in effect since January 1, 1991. The law requires all persons excavating to call at least two (2) full working days before digging and no more than twenty (20) calendar days.
IUPPS is open twenty-four (24) hours, seven (7) days a week to accept requests for buried line location. Emergency calls, defined by Indiana State Law as “an imminent danger to life, health, property or loss of service” will be accepted and will receive top priority. Routine work, however, requires two (2) full working days notice. Two (2) full working days notice is defined as: two (2) full working days from the time of the call (not including weekends or holidays). For calls placed after hours (between 6:00 pm & 7:00 am weekdays, 24 hours weekends and holidays), advance notice will be forty-eight hours from 7:00 am on the next business day.
