Rest assured

Our committed BC1C team remains fully-staffed, working remotely all across the province providing ongoing underground infrastructure damage prevention services.

Response times

Please note there may be temporary delays in response times following a locate request. BC1C members are working hard to meet required timelines.

Service interruptions

As folks across the province work from home to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, there has been a strain on telecommunication providers. This has resulted in intermittent connectivity issues with our 1-800 number.

As a result, we encourage making locate requests online. If you are unable to request a locate online and cannot get through on our 1-800 number (please note this may take a few tries due to current circumstances), you may call our non toll-free emergency line at 712-538-4089.

We’re all in this together!

We will continue to share updates on our blog and social channels over the coming weeks. We hope you understand and thank you in advance for your patience.

Stay healthy, wash your hands – and please – click, call or check before you dig!
