Subsurface Utility Clearance picture caption:
We use state of the art geophysical techniques to detect, trace, and map buried utilities or other obstructions in the vicinity of proposed excavations.
Every design, engineering and construction project relies heavily on data that shows precise lateral and sometimes vertical locations of underground utilities. Too often, aged files, records and plans fail to reveal updated and accurate positions of each buried facility. Inaccurate records can result in safety risks to site workers, design changes and costly delays.
Typical objectives of a geophysical SUE project include:
Key benefits of using FPM for your SUE project in:
The primary objectives of utility mapping and clearance work are to safeguard personnel doing intrusive work and to prevent damages to the customer's underground utilities. We achieve this by utilizing the latest in geophysical technology as well as integrating digital techniques such as GPS and GIS.
Typical surface methods utilized by FPM for SUE projects:
Radio Detector (RD400) for utility designation
Ground Penetrating Radar Survey for utility mapping/designation
GPR profile showing reflections from subsurface utility
