April is HERE! Help us to promote DigSafe Month….
April is once again National DigSafe Month, the time of year when all Common Ground Alliance stakeholders come together to communicate how important it is that professionals and homeowners call before they dig and follow the safe digging process to help prevent injuries, property damage and inconvenient outages.
The BC Government has proclaimed April as Safe Digging Month!
