Company Description: Alberta One-Call offers a free utility locator service for anyone who plans to do ground work that involves excavation. Builders and homeowners are encouraged to “call before you dig” at least two days before beginning to dig.
The “Call Before You Dig” service will provide a detailed diagram that uses internationally recognized color coding to display water and sewer, electric power lines, natural gas pipelines and communications cables.
The Alberta One-Call system was organized in the late 1970s and 1980s in response to rapid growth in the Province of Alberta. Builders and others caused considerable damage to underground utilities and risked serious injury cutting into various lines.
Today, members of Alberta One-Call include gas and electric companies, municipalities and communications companies. Diggers should call 1-800-242-3447 to make their request for information.
