Using the Damage Information Reporting Tool
Data informs nearly every aspect of CGA’s operations and industry recommendations. With the launch of the Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) in late 2003, stakeholders have been able to submit underground damage and near-miss reports through a completely secure, private web application. Using information submitted through the tool each year, CGA’s Data Reporting and Evaluation program publishes an annual report (the DIRT Report) as well as an interactive dashboard. CGA has created a variety of tools and resources around the DIRT program for members to use.
