Utility Alignment Application

Utility Alignment Application

The alignment application is required when shallow utility alignments are being performed.

Fees and Timelines

Fees are based on categories listed in the fees schedule, available on Bylaw C-1395 Fees and Charges; scroll to page 13 for Utility Alignment Permit fees.

Additional Information

  • Shallow Utility Viewer Request: To request access to the City's shallow utility viewer program
  • Engineering Services Request:  This process is independent of our excavation permit process, but is required before an excavation permit is issued. Without authorized alignment approval and payment for the alignment review fee, an excavation permit will not be issued. Issuance of an excavation permit is made to the owner of the utility and not the contractor. If a contractor is submitting an application (on behalf of a utility company) he/she will be required to have proof of authorization to act as an agent.
  • Inspection Request:  Submitted when the project has been completed in accordance with the City's Standard Specification for the Construction of Municipal Improvements.
