The Inside Outside Guys ~ Infrastructure, and the Importance of Miss Dig
From The Detroit News | By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein
DETROIT, May 4, 2023 ~ We take it for granted. The electricity that charges our phones. The gas that fires our furnace. The cable that supplies our internet.
We just assume that these sources will continue to deliver day after day, week after week. But, according to the Damage Information Reporting Tool report of 2021 compiled by the Common Ground Alliance, we are damaging underground infrastructure to the tune of $30 billion every year.
Buried lines are protected from wind, ice and tree damage, the most common causes of outages. There are 20 million miles of them in the United States and one is damaged every six minutes.
