Underground Utility Locate at the Marathon Petroleum Terminal
- Port Everglades, Florida

A project engineer needed to locate underground utilities in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The area that needed to be surveyed, using ground penetrating radar, was the Marathon Petroleum Spangler and Eisenhower Terminal facilities in Port Everglades, Florida. The project engineer contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc., who are specialists in underground utility locating. This is an ideal application for ground penetrating radar, which is one that GPRS, Inc. was capable of providing. The GPRS, Inc. South Florida team accepted the project and mobilized to the site to perform the investigation.
