Miss Utility

logo: Call 811 before you digMiss Utility of Virginia® is the free “one call” Virginia information exchange center for excavators, contractors, and property owners planning any kind of excavation or digging. The Miss Utility center notifies participating utilities of the upcoming excavation work so they can locate and mark their underground facilities in advance to prevent possible damage to underground utility lines, injury, property damage, and service outages.

The Wastewater Collection Division’s Miss Utility section is responsible for locating and marking Fairfax County-owned and operated sanitary sewer-main lines in accordance with the Virginia Underground Utility Damage Prevention Act. The staff reviews, researches and processes over 140,000 locate requests annually. Please note, the Wastewater Collection Division is responsible for marking Fairfax County sanitary sewer-main lines and has no responsibility for marking storm sewer lines.

Fairfax County does not locate and/or mark private sanitary sewer laterals that extend from the building to the Fairfax County sanitary sewer-main line. Please refer to Fairfax County Public Facilities Manual, Chapter 10-0104.5A (7), Sewage and Solid Waste Disposal; and Fairfax County Code, Section 65-6-5, Ownership of Building Sewer, for further details.

Call Miss Utility at 1-800-552-7001, TTY 711, or visit the Miss Utility website for more information.
