Utility Locating


Utility Location and Mapping

Planning prior to excavation can reduce costs and delays as well as avoid the hazards of buried infrastructure. Utilizing GPR technology, Atlantic Subsurface Imaging can provide an evaluation of a site prior to excavation or beginning new utility installation. This evaluation will locate buried utilities or other underground obstacles, such as bedrock, debris or old foundations. Atlantic Subsurface Imaging specializes in finding both metallic and non-metallic utilities including PVC, plastic, and concrete pipes as well as conduits that cannot be detected by any other means. GPR can not only detect a variety of materials, but also identify multiple closely-spaced utilities.

GPR is ideal for shallow engineering and environmental applications including locating and identifying metallic and non-metallic obstacles including buried utilities, drums and underground storage tanks. Atlantic Subsurface Imaging can also identify voids under man-made structures such as roads, runways, and buildings through the use of GPR technology.
