Sunshine State One-Call
"Call before you dig!"
The Sunshine State One-Call system was designed to facilitate
local contractors involved in excavation and the various governmental
organizations responsible for underground utilities. Calls that come
into the 800 number are electronically routed to the member
organizations based on jurisdictional and service boundaries. The
various departments are then responsible for notifying the contractor of
the presence of nearby utilities. With the departure of Julian Johnson
from the City's ranks, responsibility for maintaining Orlando's
compliance with the program and with Florida State Statue 556.101-111
has fallen upon the shoulders of the Wastewater Bureau. A direct dial
link has been established at the Bureau which operates 24 hours a day
receiving the locate 'tickets'. A paper copy is printed and an ascii
file saved. The paper copy is used internally and the ascii files routed
to the other City departments via E-mail.
