The mission of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Damage Prevention Council of Texas is to facilitate underground utility & pipeline damage prevention, promote Common Ground Alliance Best Practices, and contribute toward public safety and environmental protection through stakeholder education and communication. To meet this mission, the Damage Prevention Council of Texas has formed 23 regional Chapters for the purpose of conducting grass-roots educational outreach and solving local issues associated with the 811 process.

Comprised of construction contractors, utility operators, gathering & transmission pipeline operators, municipalities, utility locators, engineering firms, TxDOT, and other associated industry stakeholders with Texas811 serving as subject matter experts and facilitating meetings, regional DPC Chapters meet on a regular basis in every region throughout the State of Texas. DPC 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.
