You've got questions, we've got answers
In general, we can detect underground utilities that are buried within 10 – 15 feet of the surface. Our ability to detect underground utilities could be effected by a variety of variables including the utilities size or material composition, the soil composition, and the technology used to detect the utility.
We can usually schedule a field visit within 2-5 days of notice. We offer an emergency rate for projects that require a rapid or immediate response in less than 24 hours.
We have a few methods and technologies available that aid in the detection of underground plastic pipes, such as water, gas, and propane. The use of ground penetrating radar can detect plastic pipes buried below the surface in some conditions. If a pipe is not pressurized, such as gravity sewer systems or empty conduit, a traceable rodder can be inserted into the line that can be detected from the surface.
Yes! Utility Locator® is the perfect supplement to the Call 811 system. We can mark-out the utilities their locators arn’t allowed to mark-out, and we can even confirm the accuracy of the Call 811 markings.
Utility Locator® can find more than just utilities. We offer scanning services that can detect the presence of buried objects such as manholes, vaults, tanks, or even clandestine grave sites. Optionally, a report can be provided confirming the presence or absence of an underground storage tank or other objects.
