Buried Line Locator
A local electrical contractor was needing to clear an electrical trench path on the backside of a Home Depot store. The contractor needed an underground utility locate so the installation of new electrical conduit runs can be performed in a safe and effective manner, without damages to existing buried utility lines.
How We Responded
Encompass Inspections Southern California office dispatched a technician to the project within 24 hours of the project request. Once a jobsite walk was completed with the project manager for the electrical company, Encompass Inspections set out to locate and mark out all of the existing buried utilities in the project dig area.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator revealed several buried utility lines, including: live electrical conduits, gas pipes, storm drain lines, sanitary sewer lines and water main lines within the proposed excavation area. Upon completing the underground utility locating using RD7000 Utility Locator and Ground Penetrating Radar equipment, the underground findings were marked directly onto the surface allowing the electrician to perform their trenching safely and without damages to the existing utilities.
