Utility Locate Prior to Landscaping

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a landscaping contractor to scan several acres of a former explosives factory for utility lines. The contractor was planning to plant several large trees, and to rerun an irrgation line, however, because the new property owner did not have any records on the location of the utility lines, they decided to call GPRS to scan the area before the project got underway.

After we arrived to the job site, we scanned the property with both a 400 MHz GPR antenna, and a Radio Detection (RD) device. First, we scanned the area with GPR, and then we rescanned the area with Radio Detection to locate any lines that had an electrical current. Once the scan was finished, we explained our findings to the customer, and shortly thereafter, we provided them with a CAD file that depicted the locations of the utility lines (so that they would have a permanent record on file).

For a similar scan at your job site, and for all of your concrete scanning or utility locating needs in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, please contact GPRS Project Manager, Adam Kubicki by phone at (682) 999-0046 or by e-mail at adam.kubicki@gprsinc.com.
