Metal to PVC Suspected and Confirmed by GPRS in El Paso, TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems Project Manager, Joseph R. Granados of El Paso Texas was contacted recently to clear a lot in NE El Paso. The company completing the construction refused to believe that Joseph was claiming the pipe they were locating was metal to PVC pipe. The contractors chuckled and sent Joseph on his way. The location was scanned for utilities such as water lines, electrical lines, telecommunication, fiber lines, and gas lines. All of the utilities were mapped on site and painted on the surface (with depth) to signify the location of the utility beneath the surface. The drilling company was able to excavate and examine the pipe for themselves. This picture was sent to Joseph with an apology. Most importantly the construction company was able to drill each location without disrupting any live-utilities, or injuring any of their employees, thanks to the locate work completed by GPRS.
