Third Party Crossing

Third party requests are required for activities near power lines including:

  • Any equipment or infrastructure (such as pipelines, access roads, fibre optic, temporary access, water sewer lines) crossing overhead power lines or underground cables.
  • Any equipment operating within 7 metres of an overhead power line.
  • Any ground disturbance within 8 metres from an overhead power line (including anchors, guys, poles, and tower bases).
  • Installation of hazardous facilities (including well sites, tanks, valve/riser sites, meter stations) within 40 metres of an overhead power line or underground cable.

You can request a third party crossing by completing an application through My Account.

If you need to cancel your application or require changes to a previously submitted application, please email noting the FortisAlberta reference number. Please include a revised request letter and survey plans for required changes.

FortisAlberta is legally required to comply with provincial privacy legislation. In Alberta, this is the Personal Information and Protection Act (PIPA). To confirm land ownership, FortisAlberta will conduct a land title search, require proof of land ownership or a signed Third Party Authorization prior to processing the quotation acceptance and proceeding for a new service connection, or adjustments to an existing service.
