Environmental Utility Locating - Houston, TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) of the Houston office was called by a national environmental firm to perform the private utility locate prior to drilling about a four soil borings. Allyn Hirsch, technician on site, used GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) 400 MHz utility antenna penetrating 3 or 4 feet into the soil and Radio Detection wand marking out the electromagnetic fields produced by data cables, low voltage telephone, energized conduits and various other steel-like anomalies. In the picture above, the first location is being drilled in an area mere feet away from a UST and an electric line. This type of precision and safety was enabled by locating all potentially obstructive utilities and underground storage tanks prior to boring.

GPRS is the safest, most accurate method for locating underground utilities, subsurface utilities for environmental investigations. GPR technology has zero radiation and can assemble, scan and mark out in real time. GPRS of the Houston office covers Texas A&M, Bryan, College Station, Navasota, Huntsville, Magnolia, The Woodlands, Tomball, Spring and Montgomery TX.
