Bid documents cannot waive the contractor’s right to payment under PennDOT PUB 408 force account specifications to hand dig if a facility must be located. Contact NUCA PA to report any such illegal clauses.
Call 911 first, then 811, and then the facility owner. The excavator (contractor) must make these calls regardless if a facility owner tells you they will call or they did call 911. 911 and 811 create a record of your calls for defense purposes.
