Want to have a safe excavating season this year? Contact CBYD to attend one of our monthly safety meetings or register online by clicking on Special Events under the Education Tab. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month and discuss in detail CBYD regulations and requirements. This is your chance to have questions answered and learn more about the CBYD underground utility damage prevention program. There is no charge and the meeting runs about 90 minutes so that you have plenty of time to get back to work. If you have a large group that needs to be brought up to speed on CBYD regulations, contact us at 203-248-5502 or email
Call Before You Dig − System Enhancement!
By Stephen Rieben
Manager, Call Before You Dig and President, PelicanCorp One Call, Inc.
Call Before You Dig (CBYD) is migrating to a new technology platform in January 2016! The enhanced system focuses on web use and the Electronic Ticketing “E−Ticket” process. Although there will always be customer service representatives available to take 811 or 800−922−4455 phone calls, the preferred contact method to CBYD will be via our website, www.cbyd.com. A concerted effort will be made to push all business to the internet where every CBYD function will be available.
