What do I do?
There are telecommunications, TV cable, natural gas, power and sewer lines underground.
BEFORE doing any digging, if you have even the slightest uncertainty about whether there are any underground utilities nearby, file a locate request with Info-Excavation. It’s a free service offered throughout Québec.
You just have to file a single request, and Info-Excavation will check for possible hazards with all its member utilities: power, natural gas, telephone, cable TV, etc.
If there are underground lines nearby, the utilities affected by your work will arrange appointments to locate and flag pipe and cable locations.
Fill out a request to locate any underground equipment (a locate request) on the Info-Excavation Web site
