Gopher State One Call is the one-call notification system established to inform all Minnesota underground facility operators of intended excavation. Gopher State One-Call, a nonprofit organization, is one of very few statewide call centers in the county that not only covers a large geographic area, but has mandatory utility membership.


In addition, Minnesota State Statute 216D now requires anyone who engages in any type of excavation to provide advance notice of at least two working days to Gopher State One-Call. The service provided by Gopher State One-Call to excavators is free of charge. The cost of Gopher State One Call is paid in full by underground facility owners.


Gopher State One-Call is the only known provider of this service to utilities and municipalities under a State of Minnesota contract.
