Call Before You Dig in Mississippi Mills

Are you planning to dig a garden, landscape or fence your lot, excavate a patio area or pool area, upgrade your driveway, repair your home's foundation, add a porch, deck or room to your home?

Please call Ontario One Call Ltd. before you dig and take advantage of the free utility locate service.

Here's Why

Digging or excavating could damage the network of gas pipes, telephone lines, hydro or cablevision lines and water pipes which extend through your property and may be located near the surface of your lot.

Damage to pipes or a utility line can create a safety hazard or even disrupt utility service to an entire neighbourhood if the system must be shut down to repair this damage. Homeowners or their contractors who cause damage are liable for the cost of repairs and could incur a costly lawsuit if adjacent property is damaged or someone is injured as a result. Under Ontario regulations, it's against the law to dig without having natural gas lines located.
