Share information with D.I.R.T.

The (DIRT) Program gathers and analyzes information about accidental damage to underground infrastructure and has developed a growing database about root causes of utility incidents.


The program was initiated by the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), a member-driven association dedicated to reducing damages to all underground facilities in North America through shared responsibility among all stakeholders.

"Participation in DIRT is important." says Ron Peterson, president, Utility Consulting Professionals, Inc. "Information submitted is confidential and is used only to help identify root causes of damage to facilities to assist in programs that will help reduce future incidents. This is valuable information that we need to share."
