For New Participants
For new participants in the DIRT program, we understand that some of this data will be submitted later in this year once their data submission processes are established. The deadline for the submission is typically the second Friday of the following January, e.g., 2020 data was to be submitted by January 8, 2021. We strongly recommend that data be submitted on a monthly or quarterly basis through the DIRT website.
You can learn about the process by going to the DIRT website at https://www.cga-dirt.com/orcga. This website has not only the registration page but also links to a 101 introductory page, FAQ, Training course as well as the link to the Tools and Resources and a collection of the USA annual DIRT reports. Ontario’s annual DIRT reports can be found at the ORCGA website https://orcga.com/publications/dirt-report. Please note that the DIRT database does provide a number of built in reports that you can use to analyze your own companies damages to determine what educational programs will help to protect your own infrastructure and reduce damages and interruptions to your service.
You can find assistance by contacting Jennifer Parent at the ORCGA with firstname.lastname@example.org or your Member Services contact at Ontario One Call. For those Members who are currently submitting into DIRT we thank you for your continued support of this program which is an essential tool in our continuing efforts to measure and therefore reduce damages, and increase the safety of the excavation community. To those that are new to program, we welcome you and look forward to assisting you.
