Previously, when you needed locates of City-owned underground utilities, including water, wastewater/stormwater, traffic, streetlights, Brantford Power electrical, & Netoptiks communication cables, you had to contact the City of Brantford at 519-759-5100 to arrange for this service. This number is being discontinued on March 4, 2013.
On June 19, 2012, the Province passed the Ontario Underground Infrastructure Notification System Act 2012 (Bill 8) which requires all utility owners to register with Ontario One Call (ON1Call) by June 19, 2013 for private utility owners and by June 19, 2014 for municipal utility owners. This law will ensure that a single phone call from excavators, contractors or the residents reaches to the private Locate Service Provider to perform the locates. The role of Ontario One Call is to notify all registered owners of underground facilities within the vicinity of the planned excavation area to provide the locate service. The City of Brantford has complied with this legislation more than a year ahead of schedule.
As of March 4, 2013, requests for locates of all City-owned utilities go through Ontario One Call by calling 1-800-400-2255. The phone number previously being used for locate requests will be forwarded to Ontario One Call beginning on March 4th at 8:00 am and will continue for a period of 6 months.
