Dig Safe and Stay Safe

It’s Spring! We think. Here in Alberta it seems like Winter is clinging on with its icy fingers, but with every small sliver of sunshine, people are heading outdoors to do projects.

Whether the projects are large scale, or simply digging out a new garden or putting up a fence, everyone is required to Click Before You Dig.

Ground Disturbance, that is, any work, operation or activity that results in a disturbance of the earth, requires that you contact a One-Call center in order to learn what utilities are buried in your dig site. Common utilities are pipelines, power-lines, natural gas lines, sewage and water lines, internet and TV lines.

Some utilities are buried less than 60cm deep. Disturbance protocol states that when digging to a depth of more than 30cm an AB One Call Ticket should be placed and the utilities should be located prior to excavating.

April is Dig Safe Month, which means you can find a plethora of data at your fingers by checking out Click Before You Dig, and choosing your province.

3-D can do this service for you, with our One Call Ticket Management and Locate Response or Ground Disturbance Management.

The Homeowner: What’s covered by your Provincial One Call System?

Private Locate Services

DID YOU KNOW……

The power cable to your house or your garage may not be located by the Alberta One Call Locating Contractor.

Because of 3-D Line Locating’s involvement with the One Call system, we have identified the gap in the system that leaves the homeowner or business owner vulnerable when conducting even the simplest of ground disturbance activities.

Power cables and secondary gas lines are often not identified in the One Call locate and are often buried less than 60 centimeters deep.  Customer-owned lines such as sewer service, sprinkler systems or any additional lines connecting other buildings on your property are your responsibility as the home owner to have them identified prior to your ground disturbance.

If you require full assistance, we offer a One Call Placement Service. We will make the One Call and deal with all the responses for you or on your contractor’s behalf.  You can rest at ease knowing you’re protected.

Contact us now to have your private utilities identified BEFORE you dig!
