Energy Company has Confidence to Trench without Hitting Utilities

In March of 2016, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. (GPRS) was contacted by an energy company to locate utilities such as electric, water lines, communication lines, gas lines and any other utilities in Bartow, FL. The company needed to know where these anomalies were running in order to dig a trench to install new water chiller lines. The company contacted GPRS of Tampa, Florida to locate all of the utility lines to avoid hitting any of them.

Isaiah Runkle of GPRS was contacted to perform the survey at this location. Using our 400MHz antenna radar equipment, we were able to map out the utilities which were running through the areas of concern as well as provide depths to the tops of the anomalies found. The contractor was pleased with our results and felt relieved that they were able to work in the areas knowing where the utilities and other anomalies were located. Below is a photo taken on-site which depicts Isaiah locating utilities running through the area of concern.
