Call or Click Before You Dig
MTS joins the Manitoba Common Ground Alliance (MCGA) Click Before You Dig Manitoba program!
In an effort to improve the safety and overall process of Damage Prevention to underground infrastructure in Manitoba, MTS has joined the MCGA's Click Before You Dig Manitoba service. Commercial and residential excavators can reduce the risk of personal injury and property damage by using the Click Before You Dig Manitoba service, reaching more operators of buried utilities with only a single web based request for locates.*
You can inform MTS and other users of the MCGA Click Before You Dig Manitoba of your Notice of Intent to Excavate, by:
Online submissions are preferred, allow for your attached drawings and documentation, and are available for locate requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
A phone call is mandatory for Emergency locates, but for best representation of your excavation online submission is preferred.
Requests for buried cable locates should be made at least 5 working days prior to excavation.
MTS will contact you to notify you when you are cleared to excavate.
If required MTS will attend the site to mark the location of MTS buried facilities. This marking will remain valid for 14 days. Delays in excavation beyond this time will require a new locate request.
*Requests for locates with Click Before You Dig Manitoba reach a large number or buried facility owners in Manitoba who have registered to use the Click Before You Dig Manitoba service, but to notify facility owners who have not subscribed to the Click Before You Dig Manitoba service, a separate individual request to those facility owners is required.
Please visit the www.clickbeforeyoudigmb.com website for details of registered facility owners.
