August is here, and you know what that means. It’s time for the “Great Minnesota Get-Together.” While you’re partaking in the latest fried foods and carnival rides, be sure to stop by the Gopher State One Call (GSOC) booth where you can spin to win for one of our ever-popular, oh-so-colorful yardsticks.
Fairgoers can come up to the GSOC booth inside the air-conditioned Blue Flame Lodge and spin our American Public Works Association (APWA) color-coded wheel. If they tell us what the color stands for regarding excavation and locating (water, electrical, communication, gas, sewer, etc.), they receive a yardstick of that color.
At our booth, you can speak with our experts to learn more about protecting our underground infrastructure by filing a locate request before starting any digging project. We understand that life gets busy, so we will show you how easy and streamlined the ticket filing process is. Remember, for all projects big and small, to file your request 48 hours in advance, not including weekends and holidays, before you begin work.
The GSOC booth is located in the Blue Flame Gas Association building on the west side of Nelson Street, between Dan Patch and Carnes Avenues (across from the Giant Slide) from August 22 to Labor Day, September 2.
