The Northern Ohio Damage Prevention Council is a proactive network of stakeholders involved in all phases of activities requiring excavation, including, but not limited to: designers and developers, engineers, safety and notification organizations, municipalities, utility locators, facility owners, and professional excavators. Through open communication, education, and cooperation, council members work together to maintain service integrity to customers, protect the underground infrastructure and environment, and encourage the development of excavation activities that proceed in a safe and efficient manner.


The council meets the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30a.m. (except when holidays interfere), at The Illuminating Company (6896 Miller Rd) in Brecksville. Click here for the directions page.
