Private Utility Locating Services

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local commercial construction company requesting a private underground utility locate. The contractor needed a safe excavation route for the installation of new storm sewer lines across the schools baseball fields.

How We Responded

Encompass Inspections sent a technician to the site to locate all underground utilities within the dig areas. The technician used an RD 7000 to direct connect to tracer wires to locate gas lines and electrical lines. The technician then used the RD7000 clamp to locate several electrical lines and communication lines. These utility lines were in direct conflict with excavation scope of work to be done. The technician also located all of the ballfield lights in the dig area.  The technician then used ground penetrating radar to locate an underground PVC waterline.
