Before you begin excavating, you must investigate if underground services are in the area. Underground services may include gas, water, phone and electricity.
Dial Before You Dig is a free referral for information on the locations of underground pipes and cable. Using DBYD can prevent damage, disruption, injury or even death.
So before you begin your excavations, call 1100 or visit the Dial Before You Dig website (external link).
Underground service locators
Aurora Energy recommends you engage the services of an accredited cable location service provider to locate the Distributor's (TasNetworks) cables.
Contact information for cable location and underground service location services can be found in the Yellow Pages (external link) under "cable location" or through the National Utility Locating Contractors Association (external link).
