Ground Penetrating Radar Used to Locate Underground Power Line - Phoenix, AZ

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a local food bank in Phoenix, Arizona to locate an underground power utility line. This power line was essential to the operation of the business as it powered an extremely large walk-in freezer, which stored thousands of dollars of perishable foods. During a construction project on the property, this power line was damaged during the installation of a sidewalk, where concrete forms were installed to form a sidewalk that was to be poured soon. The forms were held in place by large steel spikes driven into the ground. It was suspected that one of the steel spikes hit and damaged this critical electrical line. It was absolutely essential to locate and repair this damaged power line with no more than only a few hours to spare, as the perishable frozen goods would be lost.
