Help Take Common Ground Nebraska

to the Next Level

Common Ground of Nebraska (CGN) is a member-driven association dedicated to ensuring public safety, environmental protection, and the integrity of services by promoting effective damage prevention practices in the great state of Nebraska. The association has established itself as a leading organization in efforts to reduce damages to all underground facilities in Nebraska through shared responsibility among all stakeholders. In promoting a spirit of shared responsibility, the CGN welcomes all stakeholders who would like to be a part of the identification and promotion of best practices that lead to a reduction in damage.

The purpose of the Common Ground of Nebraska (CGN) is to prevent damage to underground infrastructure by:

  • Developing and conducting public awareness and education programs

  • Fostering a sense of shared responsibility for the protection of underground facilities

  • Promote Common Ground Alliance (CGA) Best Practices

  • Serving as a clearinghouse for damage data collection, analysis and dissemination

  • Supporting research

CGN activities are funded mainly by a State Damage Prevention Grant through the State Fire Marshal’s office.  Our signature event is the annual Excavation Safety Summit which has been held for four years.  Other activities and projects include:

  • · Educational brochure creation and distribution

  • · White flag distribution and education

  • · Excavator Meetings

  • · Locator Workshops

  • · Raising awareness through Billboard and Radio Advertising

Common Ground Nebraska is committed to spreading the safe digging message throughout our great State.  Sponsorships are vital to our success.  Our goal is to build on our strong foundation and continue to provide these programs even in the event that funding is not available.  Strengthening and expanding our organization will only be made possible through further funding that sponsorships will provide.
