What should I do before I dig?

Planning some home handy work?

Before you do any digging or excavation work on your property, it’s a good idea to know the location of all the underground pipes and wires. It’s easy to find out, just visit the Before You Dig Australia (BYDA) website, and lodge a free enquiry.

BYDA is a free referral service for information on the location of underground infrastructure.

Always take care when digging near gas lines to avoid damaging gas pipes and creating gas leaks.

For more information visit Before You Dig Australia’s homeowners page.

  • Important

    Remember to always use a licensed gas fitter for any gas works at your property, including installation or removal of gas appliances. A gas fitter must also certify the work has been completed correctly and legally.
