50 in 5

The NRCGA has accepted the Common Ground Alliance’s 50 in 5 challenge to reduce damages to critical underground utilities by 50% in 5 years.

To kick off this initiative, the NRCGA’s November 28, 2023, membership meeting focused on generating damage prevention improvement ideas for the 50 in 5 initiative.

  • Every stakeholder group had a seat (or TEAMS spot) at the table.
  • Participants had the opportunity to openly voice ideas without fear of being dismissed or disputed.
  • Participants ranked their ideas with their peers based on anticipated level of effort to implement and level of impact on damage prevention.
  • These ideas will be utilized to drive our Strategic State Plan for 2024 and beyond.

No idea is too big or too small. Scan the QR code below or click the following link to submit your 50 in 5 idea to reduce damages in Nevada. https://forms.office.com/r/ueq3irahVz
