Utility Lines and UST Located Prior to Directional Bore

Private Utility and Underground Storage Tank Locate

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by the directional bore company to make sure there was not any power/electrical lines or any unknown utilities within the boring areas.  One of the clients concerns was to locate an underground storage tank (UST) that was abandoned.  The ultimate goal of the ground penetrating radar locate was to verify there was no utilities present in the selected boring locations.

How We Responded

Our technician walked the site with the customer to address all the concerns and safety issues.  Encompass attacked the problem by using a variety of state of the art locating equipment such as a RD 7000 locator, Ground Penetrating Radar with 400 Mhz antena, and a magnetometer to locate all of the utilities on site.

Results We Delivered

After conducting the survey, Encompass Inspections found an electrical conduit running through the boring areas. Several empty conduits were located to be sure they did not run through the area as a precaution.  The utilities that were found are marked in their respective paint colors.  A detailed sketch and report of the located utility lines was also provided to the client.

Client Savings

Encompass Inspections utility locate helped the client by avoiding the cost of potential damages of boring through one of the UST’s and utility avoidance. Safety is always a concern when locating utilities and underground storage tanks at fuel stations.
