Underground Utility Surveys, Mapping and Detection Services

Do you need a comprehensive utility survey of your property? If you need to dig into the ground to construct a new building or develop a parking lot, it’s important to be aware of the location of underground utility pipes and wiring.

Entering into an excavation project without knowing the location of utility lines is a dangerous, potentially costly process. Breaking gas or electrical lines can result in a significant risk of fire or explosion, not to mention extremely costly repair bills.

We provide utility survey services in Southern California. The Util-Locate team can pinpoint the location of underground gas, electrical, water and telecommunications utilities with great accuracy, letting you or your contractor excavate with confidence.

Our utility survey services

We specialize in carrying out exact, efficient utility surveys. Our team can survey a wide range of sites, from residential buildings and private homes to areas planned for commercial and industrial development.

Using a combination of electromagnetic detection equipment, ground penetrating radar (GPR), and 3D mapping software, we can create a detailed survey of your property that shows the location of detectable utilities and underground hazards.

This survey allows you to excavate with the confidence that you or your contractor isn’t going to damage any utilities. From major construction projects to renovations, you can proceed with peace of mind that risks and costs and minimized.

Hundreds of companies throughout Southern California, including construction and engineering companies, rely on our expert team to provide accurate utility surveys, line detection and other essential services.

Our utility survey equipment

We use an extensive range of modern equipment to locate utilities that are installed below the surface of your property. These include ground penetrating radar (GPR), as well as electromagnetic detection equipment used to locate tracer wire.

Many underground utilities, such as gas lines, are installed less than five feet below the surface of a property. Our team can quickly locate utilities which have tracer wire using electromagnetic detection equipment.

We also use GPR technology to gain a total understanding of the utilities installed in the ground beneath your property. Our GPR technology allows us to pinpoint a wide range of utilities, including those without tracer wire or those at a significant depth.

No matter where you need to dig – from hillside sites to flat areas – our team has the right combination of training, hands-on experience and technology to ensure you’ve got a detailed, highly accurate utility survey ready for your project.
