Encompass Inspections locates underground utilities at petroleum yard – Las Vegas, Nevada

Private Underground Utility Locating

Client Problem

The petroleum company needed to locate on site utilities, including providing Autocad utility map file for the entire property in Las Vegas, Nevada. The customer was needing a permanent solution in identifying the underground infrastructure on the property as the site is undergoing renovations.

How We Responded

Being that the preservation of the site utilities is highest priority, our specialty trained utility location technician provided technologies such as; RadioDetection to directly connect to visible utilities; GSSI Ground Penetrating Radar to detect unknown utilities, abandoned utilities,UST’s. Our trimble system was also utilized to provide an Autocad utility map of the marked utilities on site. Our technician was able to respond, with all the technologies, within 24 hours of the request.

Results We Delivered

We accessed the known mechanical/fire riser rooms, underground fiber optic vaults, sewer/storm drain manholes, electrical conduit vaults and electric pull boxes to name a few. Our Technician then directly connected to the visible lines and marked the utility line in according colors. We were able to enter the private underground fiber optic vault and we directly connected to each fiber optic communication line using the
Radio Detection equipment. There was a vault containing 30+ electrical conduits going to the stand alone fueling station and the above ground storage tanks, we safely connected to each of the ground wires in all of the 30+ conduits. For each visible sewer manhole we removed the lid and roddered each sewer line path using fiberglass rodder.  After we verified the location for each utility structure on the as builts , we used our GSSI Ground Penetrating Radar in a grid pattern throughout the entire area in question to verify our underground findings as well as to locate any untraceable utilities. Upon completion of the utility locate, we used our Trimble system to provide the customer with a AutoCad file Utility Map of the marked utilities and anomalies. Our Technicians exceeded the needs of the customer to ensure a safe renovation project could take place at the petroleum yard.
