Using DIRT Toolkit

Data Collection and Reporting Toolkit (DIRT)

CGA's Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) program collects critical damage and event information, analyzing the numbers and producing targeted recommendations to damage prevention stakeholders about how to best protect buried facilities. The CGA launched DIRT,, in late 2003, and since then stakeholders have been able to submit underground damage and near-miss reports through a completely secure, private web application. 

The following DIRT toolkit is designed to assist members with using and promoting DIRT as well as the DIRT Annual Reports. The DIRT materials are free to download. If you are not a member, you will be asked to register with the CGA web site prior to download.
