Waterline Locates

Guideline for Requesting a Locate from the R.M. of Wallace-Woodworth:

1. A Locate Request Form must be filled out at least 10 business days prior to commencement of construction. These can be found on our website: or copies may be obtained at our main office situated at 154023 P.R. 257, Virden, MB (Located at corner of P.T.H.83 & P.R.257).
2. Fill out the form following the numbered steps. The more details, the better:
1- Do not forget to include the requesting company's full address.
2- Include the legal land description where the work is to take place, even if the location has a civic address. Any other details to describe the location helps such as road numbers, etc.
3- Check off what kind of work you will be doing. If it is not included in the list e.g. construction of a new fence, please write it down under "other".
4-We will only accept plans, drawings or sketches which include a north arrow, measurements such as length of line to be installed, desired offset from property line, road numbers, and a legend. If you can't provide us with a plan, the construction site must be staked PRIOR to sending your locate request paperwork to our office OR indicate on the form that an on-site meeting is required with our utility locator.
3. Send us the completed locate request form and plan(s) by dropping it off, e-mailing it to or faxing it to (204) 748-3450.
4. We process all locate requests within 10 business days of receiving it. At times emergencies happen which require all of the utility staff's resources which in turn may delay a locate request.
