Locating the undetectable underground

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) uses electromagnetic waves to capture images below the ground's surface. Blood Hound uses state-of-the-art GPR technology to locate and map unmarked underground utilities and structures which are undetectable by traditional locating methods. This non-invasive, and cost-effective technology provides maximum precision for land surveying, environmental studies, and construction and re-construction projects.

Locating Utilities

Plotting the Underground

GPR is a highly effective technology for locating underground utilities which do not or cannot conduct a current detectable by traditional electromagnetic locating methods, such as PVC, plastic, and concrete pipes. Blood Hound technicians use GPR to plot all underground utilities, structures, and anomalies in a grid pattern.

GPR Tech Plots out a grid

GPR is used a lot of the time for the unknown utilities. It is also used for the utilities that cannot conduct a current so it will not be able to be picked up by the EM locating. GPR is great at finding anomalies. GPR scans are great at finding PVC or plastic pipe, concrete pipes anything along those lines.

Private Utility Mapping

After locating all underground utilities, Blood Hound maps the ground markings using Trimble GPS equipment and mapping software,* in compliance with the standards required by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). The maps are a value-added resource which reduces the cost of future planning and construction.

*Maps are not survey grade.

Stan our Bloodhound Technician was excellent, he went out of his way to help us with our campus locates and I definitely planning on using him again.
