Utilities and Permits

Call before you dig

It is now required by law that all excavators have all underground utilities located and marked before doing any sort of excavation.

Like any other utility company that has buried infrastructure, The Town of Georgina is also a member of Ontario One Call. All requests to have Town owned buried infrastructure (water and sewer mains, storm sewers and hydro for streetlights) located and marked are now processed through them.

To request locates for underground infrastructure, please visit the Ontario One Call website to submit your request online, or call 1-800-400-2255 to submit by telephone.

Emergency locate requests

Emergency locate requests

Underground utility locates are always required prior to excavation, even in the event of an emergency.

Emergency locates must be requested over the phone, by calling Ontario One Call’s 24-hour call centre at 1-800-400-2255.

Municipal consent to move or install utilities

Municipal Consent gives companies permission to install or move utilities within a Town road allowance. It is also needed any time a Town road needs to be excavated. A Road Occupancy Permit (ROP) is required for applicants who are doing the work on or utilising Town property.  

Road occupancy permits

The Town requires a Road Occupancy Permit anytime the Town's Right of Way will be affected and/or disturbed by activities from anyone other than Town Staff.  Some examples include, but not limited to: parking of construction vehicles, trailers, disposal bins; materials placed on the roadway or town owned boulevard, any activity including road closures or traffic disruption, and/or contractors or consultants performing work on behalf of the Town, Resident or business.

For more information, or to apply for a Road Occupancy Permit, please contact the Operations Division at 905-476-4301.
