Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by the Utah Air National Guard to locate utilities prior to soil boring. The customer was concerned about hitting utilities due to the inaccurate prints they had from past construction jobs. The customer has penetrated utilities on previous boring jobs.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems used a 400 MHz antenna for this application and a Radio Detection (RD) device to detect electrical current deep in the soil. All findings were marked with orange marking paint directly on the surface for easy interpretation by the customer. GPRS’ 400 MHz antenna was ideal because of its accurate deep penetration and the open clear area the technician had to work. GPR was utilized for this application due to the active work site in the surrounding areas. GPR emits no radiation and is safe for others to work in the area near the scan location.
For a similar scan on your job site please contact Adam Kubicki at 801-599-2115 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sonar has also been performed to locate reinforcement and conduit in concrete. X-ray can be utilized in Boise, Idaho and Helena, Montana. GPRS also uses radar to locate utilities in West Valley, Provo, Orem, Ogden, Park City, Heber City, West Jordan, and Murray, Utah.
