Ontario One Call Locates

Notice to Excavators


As of Wednesday June 18, 2014, The Town of Fort Erie will be a member of Ontario One Call (ON1Call). We ask that all locate requests go through Ontario One Call (ON1Call), it will no longer be necessary to contact our office for your water and sewer locate request.


In June of 2012, the Ontario Legislature passed Bill 8, An Act respecting an underground infrastructure notification system for Ontario. The Act made it mandatory that all buried utility owners, including municipalities become a member of Ontario One Call (ON1Call).


The Town of Fort Erie owns water, sewer, storm sewers and underground hydro for street lights. Every excavator is required by law to call for a utility locate before they dig. This includes contractors and homeowners. Please allow for at least 5 business days before the planned dig date for your locate to be completed.



To request a free locate, either call ON1Call at 1-800-400-2255 or go online at
