Ground Penetrating Radar Systems Locates Utilities for Construction Contractor

A local utility construction company is currently working on a utility repair project within a commercial facility near Syracuse, New York. Prior to beginning the required excavation needed to repair the sanitary line, the facility maintenance department wanted to pinpoint the exact path the current system ran to reduce the amount of excavation as much as possible. They also wanted to make sure there were no other local utility lines running through the area so they could avoid striking them while the digging was taking place. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. was referred to the department by other contractors that knew they not only had the ability to locate the utility lines, but to also provide their respective depths beneath the surface. The maintenance department decided to give GPRS a call and was pleased to hear he was available to complete the project well within the needed time frame.

Jim Bell of the Upstate, New York office mobilized to the site and began marking out the sanitary line, as well as its respective clean-out in the area the new line would be located. In addition to finding underground utilities, and storage tanks, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has the ability to locate and map out rebar, post-tension, and conduit prior to saw cutting and trenching, and in some cases unmarked graves.
