Underground Utility / UST Locating
For Soil Boring - Mobile, Alabama

GPRS was contacted by an environmental company out of Birmingham, AL to mobilize to locate underground utilities at an old gas station in Mobile, Alabama. The company had multiple soil boring locations and were very concerned about striking underground utilities, such as water lines, sewer lines, telecommunication lines and power lines. They were also interested in locating any unaccounted for underground storage tanks on the property. Many companies require private utility locating prior to any digging or drilling. This is very important, not only for the safety of the crew, but also due to the damage and costs associated with damaging underground utilities. For this reason, they called Ground Penetrating Radar Systems.

GPRS, Inc. is often called to mobilize to a project to locate underground utilities. Ground penetrating radar is an extremely accurate and effective way of locating the impediments in the ground. GPRS has found its accuracy to be +/- 6” when marking the center of the pipe and +/-10% when determine the depth of an object. The process is normally very quick and field markings are placed in real time.

With this in mind, GPRS completed the utility locating process in southern Alabama, marking all utilities discovered and explaining the findings to on-site representative. The environmental company was then able to continue with its drilling schedule with more confidence and an understanding of what hazards lay in their path. On site we were able to scan the entire property in only a few hours

GPRS provides a variety of locating services including utility locating and void detection, as well as concrete services such as post-tension cable and rebar locating.
