Utility Locate For Excavation
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local business to locate underground utilities in a shopping complex parking lot to allow them excavate to install new storm drains.
How We Responded
A technician from Encompass Inspection northern California office arrived on the jobsite in Reedley, California within 24 hours of the project request. Once the jobsite was walked with the project manager from the local contracting company, Encompass Inspections set out to identify and locate all utilities in the work area.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator revealed existing electrical conduits, and irrigation within the designated excavation area by utilizing the RD7000 Utility Locator and Ground Penetrating Radar. Upon completing the underground locating, the results were marked directly to the surface allowing the construction company to perform the excavation safely and without any damage to previously existing utilities as well as to job site personnel.
Encompass was able to locate multiple utilities in the excavation area that would have otherwise been hit by the excavation contractor. They were very happy to not have had to deal with potentially shutting down the store’s business activities.
