GRPS Locates Underground Utilities

Ground Penetrating Radar Scan performed in Los Angeles, CA Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Southern California was contacted by a construction company in order to locate underground utilities. The scope of work consisted of scanning an approximate 20’x20’ area prior to drilling for 5 new bollards. The bollards will be placed to shield a new electrical pad that will be replacing an existing pad. We first connected to all visible conduits, transformers and stand pipes; all findings were marked on the surface with paint. We then scanned a 2’ grid in both directions with GPR and noted all depths on the surface; most findings were 2’-6’ deep. The customer was surprised to see several findings in the area which we then highly recommended to hand dig to the desired depth.

GPR scanning is a great tool to use for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits; it can also be used to scan for underground utilities prior to digging or excavating. GPRS has offices throughout the entire state of California and performs projects in cities like; Ventura, Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, Lancaster and the greater Los Angeles area.
