About Georgia

Georgia is a unique member state because it is the location of the birth of NJUNS. NJUNS, like many changes in the business, began as a result of an accident. Georgia Power and Bellsouth formed the National Joint Utilities Notification System (NJUNS) along with the assistance of the Utility Protection Center of Georgia. Its purpose is to promote an efficient means to communicate regarding joint use ventures, increase safety, and decrease costs and liability. The system began as a fax/modem system in the Atlanta and Savannah areas in 1990.

Since 1990, users in the state of Georgia have created over 415,000 PT+ tickets of which over 280,000 have been closed. Currently there are over 120,000 tickets open and being worked in NJUNS. Current averages show that Georgia users create and close over 2,600 and 1,900 tickets per month respectively.

Georgia users also hold quarterly user group meetings that allow users to come together and discuss NJUNS and other joint use related issues. This group helps create and document standards and best practices within the state such as the White Tag Process. Links to these are available within this portfolio.
