Results of Migration to Portal

Thanks to everyone who has migrated from calling in their locates to using the portal. The portal has helped to decrease the percentage of locate notices submitted over the phone which has resulted in a large reduction in abandoned calls during the second quarter. The phone call average abandon rate during the second quarter was reduced to 1.5%.

Did you know, if you dug a hole in South Carolina to the other side of the world, you would NOT end up in China! You would dig through to the Indian Ocean, near Australia.
