If you are planning to use directional drilling, contact MISS DIG 811 at least three full days before you plan to begin work. Let them know you will be using boring technology.

Boring is a form of excavation and you must follow the MISS DIG rules when boring within the Caution Zone, to include hand exposing to verify the precise location of the marked facility. Refer to requirements described in Check Marks Before Digging and Caution Zone.

Calibrate the bore head and locating device at the start of each job.
Remember, the locating device can monitor the bore head on the initial pass, but may not be able to monitor the backream head.
