How it works:

  1. Contact Ontario One Call ‘before you dig’. Call or click at 1-800-400-2255. You will receive an Ontario One Call locate request ticket number, and we will locate and mark municipally-owned infrastructure for free.
  2. Once you have this ticket number, contact Utilities Kingston to arrange for privately-owned infrastructure locating services. You can use the convenient request form below, or call 613-546-1181, extension 2194. Have your Ontario One Call locate request ticket number, site information, invoice information, and description of work available.
  3. Gather available documentation, including any maps and drawings of the infrastructure to be located.
  4. A Utilities Kingston locator will meet you on site and review the available records.
  5. Where possible, we will locate pipes and cables with radio detection equipment. Other techniques
    will be used when radio detection equipment cannot be.
  6. We will provide you with an easy-to-read sketch, measurements or a survey-grade GPS file of your buried infrastructure (if requested).

An hourly fee applies. We will provide a quote after receiving your request and supporting documentation.
