A collection of resources to assist with your damage prevention efforts and use of the CBYD service.
In the State of Connecticut, it is the law to contact CBYD prior to any excavation involving mechanized or powered equipment. The laws and regulations regarding excavation are in place to protect utility assets, but most importantly to protect the people excavating. Connecticut’s “Call Before You Dig” (CBYD) program is effective, FREE and the law. Be responsible and contact CBYD for the safety of the community, the safety of the local utilities and your own safety!
Planning a project but not ready to dig yet?
Need to coordinate with underground utility owners for your project?
Use CBYD’s Design & Survey tool!
The Design & Survey tool allows you to submit your proposed project information to possible affected underground utilities for planning or design.
It instantly provides you with contact information for each utility to be used for that purpose.
By submitting a Design & Survey request, it sends your project information to possible affected utilities of your planned work, so please be sure to include as much detail as possible about the scope and location of your planned project on your request.
It is then your responsibility to follow up with the utilities directly to coordinate planning by contacting the phone numbers provided on your request.
**Please note: Design & Survey is NOT an excavation ticket. When you are ready to excavate, you will need to enter in a CBYD E-ticket and wait the required time in accordance with Connecticut law and regulations for utilities to respond**
The data presented in this Design & Survey application is the most recent registered public utility coverage area provided to Call Before You Dig, Inc. Call Before You Dig assumes no responsibility for errors, omissions or accuracy of the content related to this application.
