Abstract:

MISS DIG 811 has partnered with Blood Hound on a new pilot program incorporating “private utility” locating options.  MISS DIG System, Inc. is a Michigan Non-Profit Corporation that operates as the Underground Utility Safety Notification System for the entire state. MISS DIG 811 has received over 21 million locate requests resulting in nearly 189 million transmissions since 1970.

The program has allowed RTE users to select an option to be notified when a private utility is identified.  By selecting yes and a private utility is identified, Blood Hound contacts them to determine if they would like to have the private utilities located.

Bruce & Tracy will share the history, results and additional opportunities of the program.  Due to the initial success of the pilot program, MISS DIG 811 and Blood Hound are in the process of identifying and including additional services that can be offered through the Notification Center. These could include services such as Vac Truck, GPR, Engineering, Surveying, and S.U.E.
