Previous Utility Projects Performed by Penhall in Indianapolis

Ground penetrating radar used to help identify utility hazard

Locate buried sprinkler system lines to identify leakA homeowner in Indianapolis, IN, needed to map sprinkler system lines to try to determine if and where a leak existed. Our analyst used ground penetrating radar to locate the PVC lines and highlight the probable area of the leak by determining where there was more moisture in the ground. Finding underground utility is a process where our Analysts pay a lot of attention to ensure proper marking.

Locate and mark all utility objects before installing a pool

Our GPR analyst was able to locate and mark the hazards, including power, water, and gas lines. The homeowner was happy to move forward with his project knowing where it was safe to dig and what areas to avoid.

Practice safe trenching for pipeline work by locating all utilities first

locating utilities before proceeding with constructionA general contractor needed to have approximately 14,000 square feet scanned to identify any and all underground utilities prior to trenching for pipeline work. Penhall Technologies completed the work with the use of GPR and RD technology.  The utility locating allowed the customer to avoid hand digging to identify utilities. Due to this, the project remained ahead of schedule.

Penhall Technologies uses GPR and Radio Detection to locate utilities

Penhall Technologies was hired to locate private utilities around a large courtyard in Indianapolis. The customer was installing columns to support a large outdoor canopy leading from building to building. Therefore, he was concerned about damaging buried utility lines and sewer and storm drains along the sidewalks. Penhall Technologies was able to mark out these utilities using a 400MHz GPR unit and partnered with a Radio Detection utility wand and transmitter. The analyst marked all findings on the surface with spray paint and flagged. Due to this, the customer was able to complete a map of the utility locate to use for future project. Because GPR does not emit radiation, it is safe to use in areas, such as a courtyard, during regular business hours.
