Excavating Near Pipelines

Before you Start

Before you start any project involving ground disturbance, you need to identify the location of buried pipelines and other infrastructure within the proposed work area. The approximate location and type of pipeline present within the proposed work area will be identified during our visit. Visit our Click Before You Dig page for more information. 

If the proposed excavation is within 30 metres of a high-pressure pipeline, Contact Us prior to the start of work. One of our technicians is required to be present on site during excavation and backfilling activities around the pipeline. A crossing agreement is required for all high pressure pipeline excavations.
