If you are planning to put in fence posts, plant a tree, excavate for a pool, deck or a new addition, plan before you dig – it’s the law. Underground networks of services, including power lines and telephone lines, might be buried on your property. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, you must have your utilities located before you dig on your property. Accidentally hitting one can cause injury, property damage and inconvenient service outages.

Call Ontario One Call at 1-800-400-2255 for underground service locates or visit the Ontario One Call website. This free service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Please call five full business days before you plan to dig.
