Contractors or homeowners that are planning to dig are required to call Ontario One Call to request a utility locate for the dig site.  Once the locates have been received, they must be reviewed to ensure that the required areas have, in fact, been located.  The crew will mobilize to the site with the Hydro Excavation truck to begin “daylighting” or uncovering portions of the utilities to verify the actual physical location prior to any excavation or drilling
