Radiodetection and GPR Used to Locate Utilities - Hamilton, Ontario
GPRS Enterprises Inc. of Hamilton / Toronto was contacted by a local contractor to conduct a GPR scan. Our client needed to clear their project area for all utilities so that they could start the excavation process for the replacement of the water main line. It was critical that all surrounding utilities were mapped out prior to the excavation process, GPRS Project Manager Adrian Atkins was able to arrive at the site within 24 hours to conduct a survey of the property and conduct a survey of the work area to mark out and locate the exact location of not only the water main line but all surrounding utilities. After the initial GPR scan, a GPR grid scan was then performed in each area after all other unknowns had been eliminated.
The photo above represents our work area. Water main lines and all surrounding utilities were mapped out giving the contractor peace of mind to move forward with the excavation process.
Simply assuming that there are not any utility lines in an area can lead to dangerous, time consuming and costly mistakes. Our client was able to save a great deal of time and money by making sure that they knew the location of all utilities below the surface prior to excavating. GPRS takes the time and effort necessary to make sure that even simple projects are completed. We make sure that nothing is left to chance.
The photo above represents the location of the water main and communication lines using our GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) and Radiodetection equipment.
For this project accuracy was the most critical aspect to the client, the reason being the water main need to be replaced therefore shutting the water to a local shopping district. We needed to be as accurate as possible with our markings to keep this time sensitive project on schedule, GPRS was able to quickly determine the exact location of both water main lines and all surrounding utilities with the depth beside each line, using a combination of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), and Radio-detection technologies.
