Utility Locating at Cell Phone Tower - Charlotte, North Carolina

Recently, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site at a cell phone tower site in Charlotte, NC to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan. The purpose of this scan was to help determine the location of any possible utilities in the designated area prior to drilling. This was beneficial for the customer prior to drilling so they did not strike utilities in the ground during the drilling process.

We used a GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, LLC) Ground Penetrating Radar Unit with one specific antenna. The antenna used on this project was a 400 MHz antenna along with radio detection to help identify utilities.
