Call or Click Before You Dig

Dig safely: it's the law.

Logo of Ontario One CallUnderground pipes, power lines and cables may be closer to the surface than you think. Digging in the wrong place, even with a simple garden shovel, could create a safety hazard or cut off service to an entire neighbourhood. And you could be held liable for all of it. Locate underground utility lines before you do any digging on your property.

Phone Ontario One Call at 1-800-400-2255 or go to on1call.com to schedule their free locating service at least five days before digging.

More information about safe digging is available for contractors and excavators at uniongas.com/about-us/safety/safe-digging-practices.
