GPRS Locates Utilities in Statesville, NC

GPR Hired to Locate Utilities for Environmental Consultant in Statesville, North Carolina

GPRS, Inc. - GPRS - of Charlotte North Carolina was contacted by an environmental consultant to locate any utilities within 5’ of multiple proposed soil boring locations at a movie theatre in Statesville, NC. A 10’ x 10’ was marked out and all utilities in the area were located and marked out with spray paint to allow the consultant to have options on soil boring placement as well as for the potential of needing to step the soil boring out for any reason such as refusal. Our qualified contractors at GPRS are able to mark any findings in real time so that the consultant and driller could work directly with GPRS to solve problems and move the soil borings to clear locations. The consultant was able to advance the soil borings safely and gain the necessary info to further their investigation thanks to GPRS.
