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.

Another Familiar Face at 3-D!

 

Ryan Mehler- Operational Development Manager                      (with his wife; Julie and daughter Harper)

Focusing on another familiar Face at 3-D!

Operational Development Manager

Ryan joined our 3-D Team, last fall, with over 13 years’ experience; beginning in the engineering side of cathodic protection and eventually lead into the Ground Disturbance industry.

He brings an enthusiastic, humorous personality to our team and is vigorously supporting and managing our Ground Disturbance Division. You can find Ryan pacing the hallways and offices while handling the overflow of One Call submissions and responses or frequenting the field doing what he does best.

In 2009 he was introduced to the Ground Disturbance and Line Locating Industry where he was heavily trusted upon to audit Inspectors performing Ground Disturbance around hot lines on various projects and areas around the Provinces. In order to promote safe digging within these client’s organisations his main priority was assisting and directing them through the creation and/or design of their own Ground Disturbance Code of Practice(s).

On top of his many years of Ground Disturbance training and education Ryan also currently holds his NACE tickets for corrosion protection and looks forward to furthering that knowledge while at 3-D.

Safe digging and all aspects of performing safe Ground Disturbance has been exceedingly significant to his career and will continue to be for the countless years to come.

When you get to know Ryan he has quite the fascinating pre-ground disturbance career as well! Before starting in this Industry; he spent majority of his time travelling the USA, Europe, Australia and most of Canada playing professional baseball. He continues to play occasionally in Edmonton in his spare time although his love of golf has filled up majority of that spare time he talks about.

Ryan has a beautiful wife, Julie, of 3 years and recently welcomed their daughter, Harper, last September.

We are more than excited to have Ryan on the 3-D Team and look forward to the many challenging, exciting years ahead together!
