DIY Danger - Americans Hit Buried Utility Lines Once Per Minute

2008-05-06 アップロード · 21 視聴

The Common Ground Alliance (CGA), the nation's leading organization focused on protecting underground utility lines and the safety of people who dig near them, today announced findings from its first-ever National Utility Damage Assessment, which showed Americans unintentionally damage underground utilities approximately once per minute every year, risking serious injuries and costly service disruptions, fines and repair costs.

The National Utility Damage Assessment is comprised of data from CGA's Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) that illustrates recent utility damage trends (2006), as well as results from a national public opinion study of "do-it-yourself" (DIY) homeowners. This information, along with a series of relevant trend data, raises concerns about a likely increase in digging potentially resulting in an increase in utility damages for the remainder of 2008 and beyond.
