GPRS Locates Live Electrical Conduits Prior to Saw Cutting at Country Club

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site by a general contractor to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey. The contractor needed to saw cut a trench to install new sanitary lines to replace the existing sanitary. The contractor needed to know if there were any conduits in the area to avoid saw cutting through them. GPRS located a bank of live electrical conduits that were just below the concrete slab at 5” depth that would have been saw cut. The conduits were painted on the surface with depth indications so that the contractor could safely saw cut over or around them without hitting the conduits. The site had knowledge of the electrical conduits found, and were glad to confirm their location. Without GPRS on site there could have been serious damage to the electrical lines. GPRS also located the existing sanitary lines for the contractor so that they knew where they had to tie into existing sanitary. Before you saw cut or core drill, call GPRS to know what’s underground!

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems is the best way to ensure the locations of reinforcement and conduits prior to saw cutting/drilling through concrete. We also have the capabilities of locating underground utilities, UST’s, and voids.
