The North Carolina Underground Damage Prevention Act (North Carolina General Statute Chapter 87 Article 8) requires anyone commencing excavations in highways, public spaces, or in private easements of utility owners to notify each utility owner at least two business days before starting the work. Brunswick County is a member of North Carolina 811, Inc. (NC811), a non-profit corporation formed for the purpose of receiving notification from excavators.
