Whether you need to locate a single buried pipe or map out all buried structures for kilometers of roadway or acres of land, Terraprobe combines highly experienced technicians with the best equipment to successfully complete utility location projects of any size.
How We Do It:
Our technicians use a well proven process to develop a project workflow for each job.
A visual survey is done to determine the best approach which includes locating structures such as manholes, valves, lighting poles and electrical boxes etc. Terraprobe will also procure a One Call ticket to acquire drawings from the various utility providers. All available drawings are reviewed prior to beginning work.
Electromagnetic (EM) detection devices are used to locate live and loaded power lines as well as other metallic structures. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment of various types are used to locate non-metallic utilities as well as structures that are not shown on as-built drawings. GPR is also used to verify all EM based locates and to determine depths to the top of targets.
Terraprobe will acquire a BC One Call Ticket on behalf of the customer if requested. BC One Call and BC Common Ground Alliance (member)
