A massive network can be found buried underground. This network feeds essential services such as: telecommunications, cable TV, electricity, gas, waterworks, wastewater facilities, etc.
In the province of Quebec alone, at least 4 breakages to underground infrastructures happen daily. More often than not, these translate to high repair costs for the excavation company. Moreover, the operators’ safety could be compromised.
Therefore, it is very important to have excavation zones located before starting any work.
