About Us – WA
What many people do not realise is that Dial Before You Dig started here in WA.
In 1984 there was an incident in Bibra Lake where a bulldozer punctured a high pressure gas pipeline. This caused significant damage to the bulldozer, ripper, rail tracks, high tension electric towers, the gas pipeline and other infrastructures nearby. Very fortunately, the bulldozer operator survived without injury.
As a result of that incident, our Dial Before You Dig WA Foundation Members (Telstra, SECWA (now ATCO Gas Australia and Western Power) and Water Corporation) created what was then known as the Perth One Call System.
Perth One Call became operational on 16 February 1987. The Perth One Call System was then replicated across the country and is now a National organisation known as Dial Before You Dig.
