The Existence of Utilities Are Not Always on the Plans. Don’t Guess, Call GPRS


Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Arizona was contacted by a local construction company to locate utilities over 30 acres at a local resort that was under renovation.  The company hit an unknown utility that was not documented on the plans they received in preparation for the project.  In order to prevent any further damages, they contacted GPRS to begin assessing the area for utilities.  Several of the high priority areas were scanned and completed just prior to excavation.  GPRS was available onsite to address any questions or concerns the contractor may have and we were ready to locate utilities at a moment’s notice as their multi-acre project developed.

Calling GPRS before excavating or drilling can mitigate risks by keeping your jobsite safe and your project on time and on budget.  Our goal is to prevent our clients from experiencing the problems associated with unknown subsurface elements.  GPRS is able to provide locating services at a competitive rate and many times, on short notice.

GPR is a great tool for locating underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating. GPR can also be used to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes.   GPRS has provided peace of mind on several projects in Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, Flagstaff, Prescott, Kingman, and throughout the entire state of Arizona, New Mexico, and throughout the United States.
