Damage Prevention Councils

Damage Prevention Coordinating Councils of Mississippi

The Damage Prevention Coordinating Council (DPCC) is a member-driven association dedicated to the prevention of damage to underground facilities and public safety and environmental protection through stakeholder education and communication.

Typically comprised of construction contractors, utility operators, MS811, municipalities, utility locators, engineering firms, MDOT, and other associated industry stakeholders, Damage Prevention Coordinating Councils meet on a regular basis in every region throughout the State of Mississippi. DPCC meetings provide an optimal forum where stakeholders can share information and perspectives, and then work together on all aspects of damage prevention issues. In promoting a spirit of shared responsibility, regional DPCs welcome all stakeholders who would like to be a part of the damage prevention solution.
