About
Since 1986

Safe Digging is
Fast, Easy & Free.
It’s also the Law.

Missouri One Call System (MOCS) was established in 1986 in response to the Missouri Underground Facility Safety and Damage Prevention act 319 (RSMo Chapter 319). MOCS, operating as a non-profit corporation, consists of 19-board members that represent the various utility member types and other stakeholders.

The primary responsibility of MOCS is to serve as the single point of contact for all public underground facilities located throughout the state 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Once MOCS is notified of a dig site by the excavator (homeowner or professional), MOCS notifies all the public underground facility owners in the vicinity of the dig site so they can locate and mark their own facilities to prevent damage or disruption. This service is funded by its members and is free to anyone digging in Missouri.
