Locating Utilities Before You Dig

Planning on water and sewer repair, or installing a pool in your backyard? Make a call first!

You may think you know the ground beneath your feet, but you could be standing right on top of water mains, or a sewer line, or an underground electrical or telecommunications wire. Digging too close to those could be dangerous for you, and costly for the town. Before you start, contact the Yarmouth Public Works department about your water contract. You can contact us at (902) 742-9423.

For electrical and telecom lines, you'll have to contact service providers like Nova Scotia Power and Eastlink directly.
