A General contractor needed to excavate a designated area and needed to locate the underground utilities in Palm Beach, FL. The area to be scanned / x-rayed, using ground penetrating radar, was private property. Thus they contacted the private underground utility locators, Matt Rankin of GPRS. This application, underground utility locating, is a common job for GPR. GPRS, Inc. in South Florida took the call and mobilized to the site.
On site, GPRS was able to identify the underground utilities, quickly and accurately. After scanning the property, we marked the underground utilities and depth on the surface. GPRS then collaborated with the contractor, as to the depth and location of the underground utilities. The advantage to radar compared to X-Ray is that radar can locate the underground utilities from the surface of the ground, without dangerous radiation. The project was a success and why radar is “The New Way to X-Ray”.
