WHY YOU SHOULD LOCATE YOUR LINES
Contact with a buried utility can cost the lives of you and other working with you, as well as cause millions of dollars in damage.
These days a system is in place to safely and efficiently locate lines, with minimal cost to yourself. Alberta One Call members register their lines with the One Call database. When you enter your dig area into One Call, you will be notified of the member utilities in the area. The members will then send a qualified utility locator like Osprey Line Locators to mark your lines.
If there are lines not owned by a One Call member, you may require a secondary locate to make sure you don't hit them. These lines are usually gas, power, water or sewer that are owned by the property owner.
