Utility Line Locating
A local electrical contractor needed to locate all the underground power lines that were feeding the generator outside the diabetes center. The contractor needed to install new bollards every two to four feet all around the outside fence of the generator.
How We Responded
The utility locate technician used our RD8000 pipe locator to determine the location of all of the underground high and low voltage conduits. The technician also used our underground GPR system, which we used to locate and mark any unknown utilities in the work area.
Results We Delivered
The RD8000 utility locate achieved successful results. By clamping around all the electrical and communications conduits inside the generator fence, the technician was able to locate the electrical lines all the way into the building from the generator. We then used the GPR system and verified that no unknown utilities were present in the work area.
The underground utility locating survey saved the electrical contractor from damaging any electrical conduits and live power lines during the bollard installation. The costs associated with damaging underground utilities can very high, but can also be extremely dangerous, and we always enjoy leaving a job site safer then when we got there.
