GPRS Scan Locates Underground Utilities at Indiana Golf Course

Working in conjunction with an environmental firm a GPR survey was conducted at The Golf Club of Indiana Golf Course. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was there to conduct the GPR scan to see if there were any possible underground utilities or underground pipes running through an area set aside for soil boring clearance. The reason GPR scanning is used on areas like this is to locate any hazards that may be in the way of drilling. It is easy for scientists to plan where they would like to their soil borings when unknowns like utilities and other obstructions are mapped out.

GPRS of Chicago was able to conduct the scan and locate possible utilities that could have posed problems later. No underground utilities, pipes or other obstructions were found; this information was then relayed to the environmental firm and drilling team so they could proceed.

Private utility locating is a common application for GPRS technicians. If you have any questions regarding the use of Ground Penetrating Radar for concrete scanning or underground imaging on your job site in Illinois or Northwest Indiana, please contact John Lause at 312-485-7725 or
