Call Before You Dig
Prior to commencing any excavation works, you should always contact Ontario One Call (ON1Call) to have locates done. This will help you to identify where underground wires, pipes or cables are located. Not knowing their locations can not only be costly and dangerous!
Ontario One Call can be contacted by dialing 1-800-400-2255.
