2017 National DIRT Report


The Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) is designed to capture data about damage to buried facilities from excavation activities. DIRT allows industry stakeholders in Canada and the United States to submit data anonymously to a comprehensive database. The database is used to identify the characteristics, themes and contributing factors leading to damages.  

This report, prepared for the Canadian Common Ground Alliance by Green Analytics, provides a summary and analysis of the reported damages occurring in Canada during 2017.
