Texas811 has more than 1,600 members who play a vital role in protecting underground facilities around the state. Commitment from all stakeholders contributes to the success of our Damage Prevention program and helps promote safe digging for all involved. Our Damage Prevention Councils (DPC) typically are comprised of construction contractors, utility operators, Texas811, municipalities, utility locators, engineering firms, TxDOT and other associated industry stakeholders. DPCs meet on a regular basis in every region throughout the state of Texas. These meetings provide an optimal forum where stakeholders can share information and perspectives and then work together on all aspects of damage prevention issues. In promoting a spirit of shared responsibility, regional DPCs welcome all stakeholders who would like to be a part of the damage prevention solution.
