Dig|Safely. New York currently allows excavators to submit Survey and Design Requests via i-notice or by calling the operations center at 1-800-962-7962.
Callers must still contact the affected companies directly, however Dig|Safely. New York will identify those affected companies, inform them of the design request, and provide the caller with a contact number for those affected companies.
When survey and design requests are needed, the location of the cable or pipes may only be part of the story if crossing or placing a facility. The facility owner may have requirements on exposing, placing other facilities near, etc., or may be planning to add or change their buried faclilities in the future. Planning a job without all of this information may cause insufficient placing requirements, and cause delays and increased expense at the time of the job.
Dig|Safely. New York's Board of Directors want surveyors and designers to have the best information available, and will supply Survey and Design contact information. These contacts are often engineering departments who may be able to supply "as-built" maps and charts which are more accurate.
