April is National Safe Digging Month and serves as a reminder to have the location of utility lines marked before you excavate or dig. Locating underground utilities prior to commencing with excavation activities prevents line strikes, injuries, property damage, utility outages and reduces change orders and insurance claims.
Construction projects are safer, quicker and better managed when you use BHATE’s ground penetrating radar services to map underground utilities.
BHATE performs ground penetrating radar (GPR) which is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image a surface. While 811 utility locating services can be useful, GPR provides extreme precision in utility line mapping and subsurface utility engineering, which is important when preventing line strikes. GPR can find unmapped utility lines and underground storage tanks (UST), which can prevent your company from being liable for accidental releases of hazardous substances.
