What to do before you dig?
Before starting any work that calls for digging, be it to install a pool, fence or patio, you or your contractor must contact Info-Excavation : Online Locate Request with Info-ex or 1 800 663-9228. It's free!
You have appointed a contractor to do the work? Ask him if he has made the necessary checks. Every broken pipe means that the fire department andÉnergir's emergency service are called to intervene.
