GPRS Locates Private Utilities – Wisconsin

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. – GPRS of Wisconsin was contacted by large contracting company to locate the fiber optic, electrical, and any other sub surface utilities or anomalies. This site was in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Where the utilities were to be located were around a large cell tower. There were many ground wires running in these areas, but our ground penetrating radar and radio detection equipment was able to locate the lines in search. GPRS, LLC. was informed there was only one fiber optic line running through the area, but GPRS, LLC. located two fiber optic lines. GPRS, LLC. also identified the electric line running through the area. This allowed for the excavators to dig safely and keep costs down. The locating of these utilities is a nominal fee in comparison to the thousands of dollars it would cost to repair all of the utility lines.

Using our 400 MHz antenna and RD 7000 we were able to locate under a cell tower with ease and confidence. Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging or excavating. Please contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to learn how we can assist with your project.
