The New DIRT Field Form Toolkit

After more than 10 of years DIRT data collection and annual reports, the Data Reporting & Evaluation Committee is making some significant revisions to the DIRT form to ensure it continues to provide value to damage prevention efforts.

The updated DIRT form will become effective on January 1, 2018. The first quarter of 2018 will be a transition period as 2017 data needs to be entered by March 31, 2018, while at the same time some data submitters may be entering 2018 data.

The following Toolkit is designed to guide DIRT data submitters through this transition period, and to explain what the revisions are and the rationale for them. New material will continue to be added to the toolkit, so please check back in periodically.
