Water, Sewer and Storm Utilities Locate Request

Buried utility lines can be potentially dangerous and costly to repair if damaged during any project that requires ground disturbance. This is why you must first formally submit a request to all operators of utilities to locate all buried lines - gas, electricity, fibre optic, water and sewer, etc.--in the area where the ground disturbance will be occurring. From making post holes for a fence, digging a basement, planting a tree, to replacing an old utility line, respecting the markings the utilities operators have made for you to identify the locations of utility lines will help you plan and complete your project safely and to avoid damaging these assets.
