Locate Underground Services

Electrical Systems

More and more electrical systems are being installed underground. These underground systems provide a low maintenance, reliable power supply while being aesthetically pleasing, having no overhead lines in the viewscape. However, with all of these benefits, underground electrical lines do pose a hazard when there is excavation planned.

BC One Call

Knowing where these buried lines are before you dig can avert a major catastrophe. If you are planning a project that involves excavation near buried electrical cables, call BC One Call to confirm the location of underground services.
