What is Underground Utility Locating?
Underground utility locating is the process of identifying and marking the location of underground utilities such as water pipes, gas lines, electrical cables, and telecommunications lines. Why this is important? Locating utilities is important because these utilities are often buried beneath the surface and can be difficult to locate without specialised equipment and training. Utility locating is typically done before any construction or excavation work is done in order to avoid damaging or disrupting these vital services. Utility locators use a variety of methods to identify the location of underground utilities, including ground-penetrating radar, electromagnetic field detection, and sonar. It is important to use caution and follow proper procedures when locating and working near underground utilities to ensure the safety of workers and the public.
