GPRS Locates Underground Utilities Prior to Cable Trench Installation - Boardman, Ohio
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was called by a general contractor for help with a project at a substation in Boardman, Ohio. The scope of work was to locate any underground utilities for a cable trench installation. The contractor needed to excavate a 200ft trench. By using GPR and Radio Detection, the grounding grid, conduits, electrical duct banks, and drain pipes were located in the area of concern. The majority of these utilities were within the first 3’ of depth, which is how deep the contractor needed to dig. GPRS located the utilities, and then painted them on the surface with depth indications. These utilities could have been hit if they were not located! GPR and Radio Detection is an accurate, and effective way of locating underground utilities prior to excavation. Why dig when you do not have an accurate record of the utility lines that are located at your project?
