Dial Before You Dig

The City supports the Dial Before You Dig (DBYD) service in Western Australia. 
Anyone planning to excavate within the City should locate underground assets and call the Dial Before You Dig (DBYD) service. For more information please phone 1100 or visit the DBYD website: www.1100.com.au

Follow the four Ps of excavation as recommended by DBYD:

 Plan Plan your job. Use the Dial Before You Dig service at least two business days before your job is due to begin to ensure you have the correct information you need to carry out a safe project.
 Pothole  Potholing (hand digging) is a method to assist in establishing the exact location of all underground infrastructure.
 Protect  Protecting and supporting the exposed infrastructure is the responsibility of the excavator. Always erect safety barriers in areas at risk to protect underground networks
 Proceed  Proceed BUT only when you have planned, potholed and put the protective measures in place.
