Utility Location and Subsurface Characterization
Our Utility Location and Subsurface Characterization can provide services for a wide variety of clients using a combination of radio frequency, ground-penetrating radar, and direct excavation methods.
Horizons has the capability to locate the approximate depth and location of a wide variety of subsurface utilities that may include:
- Natural Gas/Propane
- Steam/Hot Water/Condensate
- Liquid Fuel (fuel oil, diesel, gasoline)
Our ground penetrating radar unit has the ability to locate buried anomalies up to a depth of approximately 30 feet, depending on site conditions, that feature radar velocity contrasts. Such anomalies may include:
- Fuel Tanks
- Septic Tanks
- Grease Traps
- Oil/Water Separators
- Foundations and concrete structures
- Solid Waste
- Other buried anomalies with velocity contrasts
In cases where anomalies are identified, Horizons can provide a qualified site work contractor to excavate target anomalies for further assessment.
