I would contact Channel 7 - they love a  good headline.
Here's the blurb:
Land Clearing - how it is good for starving farmers!
Those pesky trees are eating your Interweb. 
Channel Seven has the facts - a farmer up a pole and trees are to 
blame.    Channel 7 has the campaign.  Get behind the Climate skeptics 
before you get logged off.

Only on Today Tonight!

Sorry - but Ch7 has upset me with the hypocritical campaign for the 
pole sitting land clearer.

But to get this back on topic, I would call dial before you dig 
as they came out to check a similar problem out we had many years ago
at work.
