Limitations of EM pipe & cable locators
• Only detects metallic targets
or utilities with installed tracer
wires
• Requires a direct connect or
induced current
• Locates a single utility in one
scan
• Accuracy can be compromised
when utilities are closely
spaced due to “bleeding” of
the signal

When you just use EM … you may miss
something & cause damage
• 23% of reported damages in the US are caused by insufficient
locating practices

GPR complements EM technology
GPR detects traditionally non-
locatable subsurface features
including
• Metallic & non-metallic pipes
– PVC
– asbestos cement
– concrete storm and sewer
systems
• Utilities with broken or damaged
tracer wires
• Underground storage tanks
• Drainage tiles
• Non-utility structures
– Vaults
– Foundation walls
– Concrete pads
Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018
Additional advantages of GPR
• Can delineate close proximity
utilities
• Provides reliable depth
detection
• Allows for data visualization to
better map the subsurface
• Facilitates reporting and
archiving of results for future
reference

Example: Using GPR to find non-metallic
utilities
• A horizontal directional drilling crew accidentally struck a concrete
storm sewer that had been missed by locators when installing
conduit for fiber.

Example: Using GPR to find non-metallic
utilities
GPR effectively
pin-pointed the
location of the
sewer to prevent
another
expensive fix.

Example: GPR locates utilities in a busy
intersection
A busy intersection needed to be excavated. The number of utilities
made it difficult to get accurate readings from EM locators because of
bleed off.
GPR was used to collect a grid and map all utilities.
It took less than 3 hours to collect the data & get results on-site.
Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018
Example: GPR locates utilities in a busy
intersection
GPR mapped all
utilities, metallic and
non-metallic in the
intersection, allowing
for safe excavation.

Example: Locating Underground Storage
Tanks
• A gas station wanted to install additional monitoring wells but did
not have records of the exact perimeter of the underground fuel
storage tanks.
• They used GPR to map the tanks and other buried infrastructure to
ensure safe installation.
Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018
Example: Locating Underground Storage
Tanks
GPR successfully mapped the location and depth of underground
storage tanks and feed lines.
Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018
Use GPR to make Informed Decisions
• Confirm that you have located
all buried infrastructure
• Identify where it is safe to
excavate
• Document results for future
reference
• Expand your locating service
offerings and make more
money
• Reduce liability and risk with
more thorough locates

  • 2. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Limitations of EM pipe & cable locators • Only detects metallic targets or utilities with installed tracer wires • Requires a direct connect or induced current • Locates a single utility in one scan • Accuracy can be compromised when utilities are closely spaced due to “bleeding” of the signal
  • 3. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 When you just use EM … you may miss something & cause damage • 23% of reported damages in the US are caused by insufficient locating practices 56% 23% 16% 1% 4% Cause of Damage Excavation Practice Not Sufficient Locating Practices Not Sufficient Notification NOT Made Notification Practices Not Sufficient Miscellaneous Cause Source: Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) Report for 2016, Common Ground Alliance

  • 5. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 GPR complements EM technology GPR detects traditionally non- locatable subsurface features including • Metallic & non-metallic pipes – PVC – asbestos cement – concrete storm and sewer systems • Utilities with broken or damaged tracer wires • Underground storage tanks • Drainage tiles • Non-utility structures – Vaults – Foundation walls – Concrete pads
  • 6. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Additional advantages of GPR • Can delineate close proximity utilities • Provides reliable depth detection • Allows for data visualization to better map the subsurface • Facilitates reporting and archiving of results for future reference
  • 7. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: Using GPR to find non-metallic utilities • A horizontal directional drilling crew accidentally struck a concrete storm sewer that had been missed by locators when installing conduit for fiber.
  • 8. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: Using GPR to find non-metallic utilities GPR effectively pin-pointed the location of the sewer to prevent another expensive fix.

  • 11. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: GPR locates utilities in a busy intersection A busy intersection needed to be excavated. The number of utilities made it difficult to get accurate readings from EM locators because of bleed off. GPR was used to collect a grid and map all utilities. It took less than 3 hours to collect the data & get results on-site.
  • 12. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: GPR locates utilities in a busy intersection GPR mapped all utilities, metallic and non-metallic in the intersection, allowing for safe excavation.
  • 13. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: GPR locates utilities in a busy intersection GPR mapped all utilities, metallic and non-metallic in the intersection, allowing for safe excavation.

  • 16. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: Locating Underground Storage Tanks • A gas station wanted to install additional monitoring wells but did not have records of the exact perimeter of the underground fuel storage tanks. • They used GPR to map the tanks and other buried infrastructure to ensure safe installation.
  • 17. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Example: Locating Underground Storage Tanks GPR successfully mapped the location and depth of underground storage tanks and feed lines.
  • 18. Copyright Sensors & Software Inc. 2018 Use GPR to make Informed Decisions • Confirm that you have located all buried infrastructure • Identify where it is safe to excavate • Document results for future reference • Expand your locating service offerings and make more money • Reduce liability and risk with more thorough locates VALUE INFORMATION Subsurface Data Interpretation Knowledge Informed Decisions
