Utility Alignment & Excavation Permits
Utility Alignment Permit
A Utility Alignment Permit is required when a third party utility company (ATCO, Bell, Rogers, Shaw, Telus, etc.) would like to install infrastructure within a City road right-of-way, utility right-of-way, or a City owned Public Utility Lot. Permit submission requirements are contained within the Utility Alignment Permit Guide & Application Requirements (pdf) document.
An Excavation Permit is required whenever a party wishes to break the surface of a right-of-way. This includes activities such as conventional excavation, soil removal, directional drilling, pedestal installation, as well as borehole and monitoring well installations.
