Ground Penetrating Radar Systems Locates Utility Before Digging

A local utility company is currently working on utility installation project within their facility in Watertown, New York. Prior to starting the required excavation for the placement of the new utility lines the facility maintenance department wanted to locate all subsurface utilities within the scope of work to eliminate the chance of striking any of the lines 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 all of the utilities that were located in the area the new lines 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.
