How can I build or landscape safely around underground power?

Before doing any digging or excavation on your property, it is essential that you contact Dial Before You Dig for detailed plans on the underground services within the road reserve or verge near your property. These plans show you services like electricity, gas and water. Make sure you pothole carefully with a shovel prior to digging, to help locate the direction of services into your property.
