Using a two-step process of radio detection and ground-penetrating radar, GPRS technicians have the training and the equipment to locate underground utilities on your site. By providing a comprehensive picture of existing sub-surface utilities, GPRS helps to protect your workers and to avoid damage to:

  • Gas
  • Sewer
  • Power
  • Phone
  • Communications
  • Other underground lines or cables and surrounding environment.

Electromagnetic Induction
GPRS employs Electromagnetic Induction technology in conjunction with ground penetrating radar on your job site to provide a comprehensive utilities survey. Our hand-held Electromagnetic Induction equipment (RD-7000) consists of a base unit and a wand to locate metallic pipes, live electrical currents, or signals from communications wires. Electromagnetic Induction makes it possible to locate utilities in areas where conditions are not conducive to GPR technology alone.

For more information on private utility locating, please contact your local GPRS representative today.

Creating a Permanent Record
GPR technology along with GPR and EMI services can be combined with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) information to create a permanent record of the underground area at your job site. The data can be overlaid onto Google Earth or CAD documents, providing you with a permanent map of the physical reference points of your project’s underground utilities and environment.
