CGA Members,

One of CGA’s signature programs is the 811 “Call Before You Dig” campaign that reminds homeowners and contractors of the steps required to mark underground utilities before any digging begins. Currently, the campaign stresses that one call, to the national 811 telephone number, is all it takes to start the process. However, with so many homeowners and contractors using mobile, online and other platforms to access 811 services, the “Call Before You Dig” tagline is no longer inclusive of all of the ways people request locates. In 2016, CGA will debut a new tagline that better represents current and future practices. All of the questions in this brief survey relate to the development of the new tagline. 

Please take 5 minutes to review the survey and share your opinions. We appreciate your willingness to help the underground utility industry remind all Americans that safe digging is no accident.

Thank you,
