Call Before You Dig
Are you putting in fence posts, planting a tree, excavating for a pool, deck or a new addition? Before you dig, think about what services might be buried in the ground because what you can’t see can hurt you.
What is at risk?
Damaging underground services can have serious consequences:
- Personal injury
- Loss of essential services, creating a safety risk for others
- Expensive restoration costs and potential legal actions
Having your utilities located before you dig is also the law under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (section Construction Projects 228).
Ontario One Call
Utility Notification Service: 1-800-400-2255
