Private Utility Lines Locates Prior to Trenching - Charlotte, North Carolina
Recently Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan. The purpose of this scan was to locate any existing utilities that were present in the designated path for trenching and doing a directional bore for a new utility being installed. Once the utilities in the path were identified they were marked directly on the surface. After all anomalies were located, GPRS logged the coordinates of the utilities using a Trimble GPS unit and overlaid the findings onto an existing CAD file for the customer to have as a permanent record.
We used a GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc.) Ground Penetrating Radar Unit with one specific antenna. The antenna used on this project was a 400 MHz antenna along with Radio Detection.
With the use of this equipment and the experience of GPR, we were able to help the customer avoid any conflict before trenching and boring through subsurface utilities.
