Locating utility lines

Locating underground County infrastructure utility lines

If you are building a deck or fence, re-building a driveway or planting trees, please refer to the following information to prevent damage to the County utility lines:

  • Call Strathcona County Water & Wastewater Services at 780-467-7785 to locate water, sewer and sump collector lines on public property up to and including the curb cock valve. Please note: water, sewer and sump pump collector lines are not included in Alberta-One Call.
  • The water and sewer lines are not necessarily in a straight trench to the house or building. To have a private water line located, homeowners are advised to contact a private contractor offering this type of service.
  • The water and sewer service lines were extended from the curb cock valve location to the house by the home builder. There are no records maintained on where these lines are installed.
  • Strathcona County will locate sump collector lines on private property that were installed by the County during the third pipe installation program.
  • Curb cocks located in driveways will require a plastic casing before concrete is poured. If the homeowner is proposing any grading alterations or hard surfacing on the property in the area of the curb cock, Water and Wastewater Services will adjust the curb cock vertically to match the finished surface elevation.
  • All locates are normally completed within three business days barring an emergency or unforeseen circumstances.

Utility companies request permission to utilize County land to install lines and provide services to site customers.
