UTILITY MARKING INFORMATION




"Locating your utility is a MUST before digging the foundation".
Installer team - Canamhoops



CALL YOUR LOCAL UTILITY PROVIDER


Call your local utility provider from anytime where in the country a few days prior to digging, and your call will be routed to your local One Call Center. Tell the operator where you're planning to dig, what type of work you will be doing and your affected local utilities companies will be notified about your intent to dig. In a few days, they'll send a locator to mark the approximate location of your underground lines, pipes and cables, so you'll know what's below and be able to dig safely.
