Underground Utility Locating at Chemical Plant in Middletown, Ohio

The Underground Detective was recently called out to do a job at a chemical plant in Middletown, OH. We were called out to locate underground utilities so they could re-work the turnstile area at the plant. Being a chemical plant with many risks involved, we had to put on our thinking caps and be extra cautious when this job arose.

Underground Utility Locating Risks

You run into risks with excavation at any job, but especially at a chemical plant. Since there are so many risks involved with doing a renovation at such a location, it was a great idea to take every precaution possible. We used electromagnetic locating equipment, and scanned the area with ground penetrating radar (GPR). GPR uses non-destructive electromagnetic radiation waves and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. But, don’t worry – it doesn’t give out enough radiation to interfere with the chemical plant processes!

Underground Utility Locating Solution

Utilizing GPR services reduces many risks and cuts down on costly damages done when an excavation starts without properly locating utilities. GPR ensures a safe work environment and provides non-destructive testing by locating underground unknowns such as metal, plastic, concrete, steel, rock, soil, pavement, and even ice.
