Private Utilities Located before Digging - Charlotte, North Carolina

On July 19th 2015 Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on an undisclosed site in North Carolina to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan. The purpose of this scan was to identify any possible utilities in the designated area’s prior to doing any excavating for trenching purposes. During this process we were able to mark out power, and data lines in the areas where they had planned on digging. This helped the customer tremendously saving them valuable time and money down the road.

We used a GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, LLC) Ground Penetrating Radar Unit with one specific antenna. The antenna used on this project was a 1600 MHz antenna. This antenna is beneficial when locating rebar, PT cables, conduit and other anomalies that may be present in the slab.
