Abstract: In 1967, four utilities-gas, electric, telephone and water-in Bridgeport, joined in a local effort to establish a One Call Covers All system patterned after the Rochester, New York system. It provided one telephone number in the Bridgeport area that contractors could call to notify all four utilities of their intent to excavate. Each utihty would then locate and mark their facilities, and work with the contractor to coordinate the excavating operation. The One Call Covers All system proved to be very successful, and during the first year of operation accidental dig-ups were calculated to have dropped 40 percent.
