GPRS Clears Soil Borings TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems Project Manager, Joseph R. Granados of El Paso Texas was contacted recently to clear soil borings between two cell phone towers in the Sunland Park area of El Paso. The environmental company completing the soil testing wanted to make sure that all drilling and boring locations could be completed as safely as possible. Utilizing GPRS minimizes the risk of striking a utility. GPRS used ground penetrating radar to locate and map out the utilities before any drilling began. Each location was scanned for utilities such as water lines, electrical lines, telecommunication, fiber lines, and gas lines. All of the telecommunication lines were mapped on site, pin flagged, and painted on the surface (with depth) to signify the location of the utility beneath the surface. Once the client was clear on the location and depth of the utilities, work could commence safely. The drilling company was able to drill each location without disrupting any live-utilities, or injuring any of their employees, thanks to the locate work completed by GPRS.
