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:

  • Strathcona County is now part of Alberta One Call. Call 1-800-242-3447 or click to submit your locate request. Water, sewer and sump collector lines on public property up to and including the curb cock valve, as well as community energy lines in Centre in the Park and Broadmoor Lake Park will be located. 
  • 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.
  • 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.

County-owned underground infrastructure

Contact Alberta One Call at 1-800-242-3447 or click to submit your locate request.
