    Underground utility locating is a service provided that assists in mapping out the underground web of utility lines that you likely have present on your property. Without understanding where your important utility lines and pipelines are, you run the risk of potentially damaging them when it comes to future home renovations or home-improvement projects.

    Radio Wave Detection

    Radio wave detection uses electromagnetic signals that are transmitted underground to indicate where utility lines are, before sending a signal back up to the receiver machine above ground. One of our professional operators will assess the receiver signal and then determine where the signal was derived from the pipeline system. This will allow us to further see where the pipes intersect, are located, and any other utility lines that are present in the area.
