Third Party Locate Requests
Ontario 1-Call has issued a memo (May 21, 2010), regarding requests for locates being submitted by third parties, which can be read by clicking here. It would appear from this memo, that one can no longer request a third party to look after the locates on their behalf. We have heard through the grapevine that some private locators have been providing this as a service to their consultant clients. This would also imply that one cannot use locates obtained by others on a site, such as a contractor who may also be working on the site at the same time who provides a copy of their locates to the consultant. Therefore, when Kodiak is drilling at a site, the locates must be in the name of the consultant who has hired us to drill, unless the other party will be “responsible” for directing the drilling.
