Dial before you dig
Do not excavate until you know what’s underground
Stay safe and observe the law when digging near essential services – electricity, gas, communications and water
If you are planning excavation works, it is your resposibility to ensure any work undertaken will not damage electricity cables or gas pipelines (or water and communications infrastructure). Tough laws and penalties apply to essential services infrastructure damage.
Dial Before You Dig is a free national referral service designed to prevent damage and disruption to the vast pipe and cable networks which provides Australia with essential services.
