About Utility Locating
Underneath today’s city streets exists a labyrinth of underground water, sewer, gas, electric and telecommunication lines. As urban populations increase, 50% of a predicted 7-9 billion people are expected to be large town or city dwellers by the year 2012, so the quantity and complexity of underground utilities rises to meet the demand for potable water, telecommunications, energy and sewerage services.
(EM) Utility Locating
Electromagnetic line locators operate by locating either a background signal or by locating a signal introduced into the utility line using a transmitter. There are three (3) sources of background signals which can be produced.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is the latest method for non-destructive and non-invasive subsurface investigation. GPR is the tool of choice for those who need to locate and identify the presence of buried utility infrastructure, both metallic and non-metallic.
