Each month SC811 compares the total number of locate request notices taken and the number of transmissions that each member receives. These totals are compared monthly and by previous years.
The ACD report is the monthly report of all calls that come into the call center. This report gives average talk time, average speed, and other call percentages.
Excavator Check Positive Response
This map is used to depict the percentage of notices in which the excavator checked positive response before the expiration of the notice. The numbers are calculated by the county the excavation took place. SC811’s goal is to have all counties in dark green. To search for specific excavators, use the search box in the top right hand corner.
Member Closed Code Positive Response
The number of closed codes used before or on the work date of a notice is divided by the total number of transmissions with in each county. The outcome is displayed as a percentage on the below map.
Member Reported Damages
If a damage occurs, it is most likely discovered by the facility operator via outages or service degradation. The success of damage prevention depends heavily on members providing their damage data to SC811. This map shows the number of member provided damages divided by total notices per county.
Excavator Closed Notices
As part of South Carolina state law the last step of positive response requires the excavator to close out their notice. This map calculates the percentage of notices closed out by excavators by county.
Excavator Reported Damages
South Carolina state law requires all damages to be reported to SC811 and the Facility Operator, if known. This map displays the number of damages reported compared to the total number of notices called in by county. In many counties, the member reported damages is so low, they cannot even be quantified in hundredths of a percent.
Though the statewide total notices increased by ~12% over 2015 some counties experienced greater increases while others even suffered drastic decreases. Check out the growth percentages on this map.
