What's Lurking Underground


You may not know it but electricity cables may be buried underground right in front of your nose! And not just electricity cables – there could be water, gas and waste water pipes.

Accidents can occur when people do not know where electricity cables have been buried either outside a house or in the berm (the grass area by the footpath and road) and they accidentally hit a cable as they dig.

Before your family or friends start digging, they should call 0800 B4 U DIG (0800 248 344) to check that there are no underground cables.
