GPR Scan to Locate Sewer Lines

Locating Underground Sewer Lines

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by a plumbing contractor who needed to locate a sewer line at a local Pieology and a drain line at a Jamba Juice, in order to repair them.

How We Responded

A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Northern California office and arrived on the project site in Dublin, CA within 24 hours of the project request.  Once a jobsite walk was completed with the contractor, Encompass Inspections set out to locate and mark out the broken sewer line, while also locating drain pipes for the contractor.

Results We Delivered

The underground utility locator revealed the path of the broken sewer line and drain line within the proposed excavation area by utilizing Ground Penetrating Radar.  Upon completing the GPR utility scan, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the contractor to perform their excavation and repair the sewer line safely and without any damage to the underground structures or to job site personnel.

Client Savings

Providing the client with accurate underground utility locating services, allowed the contractor to perform the repairs on the sewer line with minimal disruption to the near by restaurants. Had a utility locate not been performed, a larger disruption to local business and increase construction costs would have been the likely result.
