Are you installing a fence, landscaping or digging a garden? Renovating or building an addition to your home? Excavating for a new porch or swimming pool?
Digging in the wrong spot during renovations could damage the underground network of natural gas pipes, telephone, hydro and cable TV wires, as well as water and sewer connections. This could cut off service not just to your home, but to the entire neighbourhood and could cause a safety risk to yourself and others.
Homeowners and contractors are required by law to obtain the location of buried natural gas pipes before breaking ground.
Enbridge Gas New Brunswick offers a free service to protect you and others from unnecessary damage. We will locate underground natural gas pipes and mark them with yellow paint, stakes or flags so that you can avoid damaging underground pipes.
Damaging underground services can have serious consequences for you such as:
- Loss of service, creating a safety risk for you and others
- Expensive restoration costs and potential legal action
Call the free locating service at least 2 days (48 hours) before you plan to dig. For emergency locates, Enbridge Gas New Brunswick is available 24/7.
Have a pen ready and be prepared to provide:
- Who is digging
- When and where you are digging
- Why and how you plan to dig
- Telephone number for a return call
If necessary, a locator will visit the site and identify and mark the location of underground pipes.
