What Makes Utility Survey Corp. Different?

By Utility Survey Corp.

Providing utility locating and related services is nothing new for Utility Survey Corp., in fact we have been in the business for almost thirty years!

Our main focus almost 30 years ago started as a water leak detection company. We saw there was a need in the industry to locate not only the utilities for use in water leak detection, but also saw that there was a wider demand for private utility locating services in general.

Our goal then became to not only offer services for an up and coming underground utility locating industry but more importantly to educate our clients on the potential dangers of doing any type of digging, cutting or coring with out first knowing what was below.

Best Practices for Underground Utility Damage Prevention

By Utility Survey Corp.

In most cases, calling 811 (one-call) to schedule a public utility locate is only the first step for underground utility damage prevention. 

One-call may not have all the equipment necessary for complete results and they might not be able to locate underground utilities in all the areas you requested if the locations move onto private property and outside the bounds of One-Calls locating services. It’s a wise decision to hire a private utility locating company to verify actual utility locations and/or cover all the areas you need.

Introduction to Electrical Resistivity Imaging

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

Electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) is a non-destructive method for subsurface investigations. Although it’s not as popular as ground penetrating radar (GPR), it has its advantages and can be very useful in some situations.

Ground Penetrating Radar for Non-Destructive Testing of Concrete

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

For non-destructive testing (NDT) of concrete, radiographic inspection (using X-Ray or Gamma ray, etc.) and pachometers (cover meters) are two of the commonly used methods. The disadvantages of radiographic inspection include very strict safety requirements, access to both sides of the concrete, off-site processing, etc. While a pachometer doesn’t have these disadvantages, its precision and resolution might not be acceptable for the required uses.
