Application of this new standard can help improve accuracy and reliability in locating & mapping underground infrastructure, as well as improve record keeping. It can be applied to proposed, existing, abandoned-in-place, retired or reserved-for-future-use situations.

S250 can help ensure that accurate information about underground utility infrastructure is captured and available for future projects.

Overview

Until recently, accurately recording the presence and location of utility infrastructure was not formally required, nor carried out in a consistent manner. This standard helps ensure that accurate information about underground utility infrastructure at or below grade is captured and available for future projects.

CSA S250 helps municipalities and their service providers to:

  • Increase accuracy and reliability, and enhance record keeping in locating and mapping underground infrastructure
  • Improve the safety of company and contractor employees, and the general public by reducing the potential for utility hits or strikes and service interruptions
  • Reduce utility design costs by sharing accurate and complete utility records in a timely fashion among key stakeholders during the planning, circulation and permitting processes
