Becoming a Member
Membership with Kansas 811 is open to anyone who has underground facilities that need to be protected. Currently there is no annual membership fee, so you only pay for the tickets that you receive.
The Kansas law (K.S.A. 66-1802e) requires the operators of the following facilities to be members of Kansas 811: sanitary sewer, underground line, system or structure used for transporting, gathering, storing, conveying, transmitting or distributing potable water, gas, electricity, communication, crude oil, refined or processed petroleum, petroleum products or hazardous liquids; facility shall not include, any stormwater sewers, production petroleum lead lines, salt water disposal lines or injection lines, which are not located on platted land or inside the corporate limits of any city.
We would be pleased to add your company to the ever-increasing list of underground facility owners in the State of Kansas. Please complete all eight (8) of the forms below and email them to email@example.com. Once received, we will proceed in setting you up to begin receiving tickets.
If you have any questions, contact the Call Center during business hours at (316) 687-2102. We look forward to working with you.
Ticket Check® is a web-based tool that allows a facility operator to provide a “positive response” to locate requests from Kansas 811. You can use Ticket Check® to respond with status messaging regarding whether a ticket has been marked or cleared and excavators can use it to check on status messaging regarding whether a ticket has been marked or cleared.
Members are not required to use Ticket Check® though it is a free tool provided by Kansas 811. We will send your status information (via email) to the excavator. This information, and all related data, will be recorded and stored for future use and reference. Save yourself time and money and forget about having to manage phone calls and emails with excavators and the associated record keeping.
Ticket Check® will only be used for situations when an area has either been marked or is clear of your facilities. In any other situations (i.e., area of excavation cannot be determined, site is not accessible, map(s) or other documentation needs to be provided to the excavator, etc.), direct contact with the excavator is critical and required by Kansas statute/regulations. To see the complete list of Ticket Check® restrictions, please select the rules and regulations link.
Locator Ticket Management (LTM) allows for control over the management, assignment, and tracking of your incoming locate requests. LTM is available free of charge to all Kansas 811 registered facility operators.
IMAP is an online application that allows Kansas 811 registered facility operators to view, add, modify, and delete notification polygons from their active database.
Excavators and facility operators can use the Kansas 811 app to easily and quickly manage locate requests. Anyone planning to excavate in Kansas can use the app to initiate, manage and monitor a locate request prior to excavation. Facility operators can use the ticket management feature to provide a positive response to excavators. Download the Kansas 811 app and use it to:
- Submit Locate Requests. Log in to ISITE for access to all of Kansas 811’s online tools such as IMAP, Locator Ticket Management, and ITIC.
- View the positive response history and an online worksite map through Ticket Search.
- Find and view previously submitted tickets with Ticket Search.
- Access a Resource Center with links to various manuals, member forms, and instructional videos. View and share these items with the click of a button.
Contractor meetings are held across the State of Kansas from January through April each year. Members are encouraged to use them as an opportunity to interact with excavators and other members to promote damage prevention, and are invited to pass out your company Call B4U Dig promotional items and handouts. There are 4-5 display tables available at most meetings. This is also an educational opportunity for utility contractors working for member companies, as well as member company equipment operators. The main focus is digging safely in Kansas, raising awareness on new rules and regulations, web site information, FAQ’s on the law from the Kansas 811 web site, Kansas 811 damage investigations, and our internet ticket (ITIC) process. Please note: KDHE is no longer offering 1 hour of training credit to certify Kansas water supply and wastewater treatment operators who attend this training.
Door prizes are given each year at each meeting, and we want to include items from member companies. If your company would like to participate, let us know which meeting(s) and the number of people attending, either by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the locations and numbers marked, or by contacting one of the Kansas 811 Damage Prevention Managers listed on our About Us page. LDC and pipeline members: This is an effort to participate in these meetings. There are no costs to member companies for these meetings, and sign-up sheets will be available upon request. Thanks, and your participation is always appreciated! If you have any questions, please contact your regional Kansas 811 Damage Prevention Managers.
The current contractor meetings schedule will be posted here every January.
