Are you planning to dig a garden, landscape or fence your lot, excavate a patio area or pool area, upgrade your driveway, repair your home's foundation, add a porch, deck or room to your home?
For your safety and the safety of others, call Ontario One Call at 1-800-400-2255 or go to on1call.com before you dig to obtain the location of underground utility lines.
Gas and water pipes, power lines and telephone cables that extend through your property may be closer to the surface than you think. Digging into them could create a safety hazard or cut off service to an entire neighbourhood. And the person who pays for it could be you.
It’s against the law to dig on your property with anything larger than a hand tool until utility lines have been located.
A simple call to Ontario One Call, a week in advance, is all it takes. Their locating service is FREE. And it will save you from the costly repairs and legal costs you’d be liable for if damaged utility lines on your property caused damage or injury to your neighbours.
To request a locate, call 1-800-400-2255, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, or go to on1call.com. Call at least five full business days before you plan to dig. Ontario One Call will relay your locate request and information to Union Gas or their designated locate service provider, as well as other participating member utilities. You will be provided with a timely, FREE locate of the underground facilities so you can complete your project SAFELY.
