Call Before You Dig (CBYD)

Emergency calls occur when the standard 48 hour notice cannot be given for reasons provided in the CBYD Excavators’ Manual. It is the responsibility of the person digging to contact the individual utilities in the area. A CBYD request must still be made by calling 800-922-4455 and they will give you a list of utilities to contact. By state regulation it is the responsibility of the caller to notify the individual utilities directly.

CBYD has the Town of Coventry listed as COVWAT (short for Coventry Water Pollution Control Authority).

During normal work hours (7 a.m. - 3p.m., Monday - Friday) please call Public Works at 860-742-6588 and the appropriate personnel will be notified. Outside of normal hours please call Coventry Police Dispatch at 860-742-7331.
