BRUSHING

Due to substantial weight of brushing equipment, a crossing agreement is required before performing work on the right-of-way. Contact TransCanada to apply for an agreement.

 

CALL/CLICK BEFORE YOU DIG

Brushing poses a significant risk to the integrity of the pipeline as it removes soil cover. Before brushing, contact you local One-Call Centre- it's a FREE service! TransCanada will send a representative to mark the location of the pipeline facilities and must be present to oversee the work. 

 

DITCHING

Ditching poses a significant risk to the integrity of the pipeline as it removes soil cover. Before ditching, contact your local One-Call Centre. Trans Canada will send a representative to mark the location of the pipeline facilities and must be present to oversee the work.
