For the last 50 years, utility damage prevention has worked the same way. The excavator calls the notification center, describes the planned work, the center contacts facility owners in the work area, and underground facilities are marked. This process has prevented billions of dollars of damage to underground facilities ever since.

That initial excavator call drives the system; but without that call, the system doesn’t work.

Damage caused by excavations without a one-call ticket is huge. CGA data says that 24% of all damages nationwide result from excavations without a one-call ticket. We need a way to provide protection to high-value underground facilities even when there is no one-call ticket.

Fiber Optic Sensing provides a way to do that.
