GPRS Locates Utilities in Raleigh, NC

Don’t Trench Blind, Call GPRS- Utility Locate in Raleigh, North Carolina.

GPRS, Inc. - GPRS - of Raleigh North Carolina was contacted by an electrical contractor to locate any utilities within 10’ of a proposed trench at Neuse River Waste Water Treatment Plant. The client was running temporary power from an existing transformer to three temporary office trailers. A 10’ area on either side of the proposed trench was marked out and painted on the surface to assure safe digging and a safe project. We used Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and EM pipe locator to locate multiple electrical feeds, water lines, and communication lines in the area. It is important to call GPRS to get any private utilities located to assure a safe project and to avoid any unnecessary costs or down time. GPRS is the most affordable and has a greater than 99% accuracy rate around the country and prides itself in keeping projects running smoothly and safely.
