Private Utility Locates (Underground & Outdoor)
Depended upon by contracting companies, property owners and homeowners in Toronto and across Southern Ontario, Target Radar Solutions is a professional, licensed private utility locator based in Etobicoke. We combine state-of-the-art GPR and Electromagnetic (EM) Induction technology to provide accurate, real-time results for locating buried utilities and precise positions of both metallic and non-metallic targets. Note that non-metallic objects, such as plastic water pipes, must have tracer wire in order to be detected.
WHY USE A PRIVATE UTILITY LOCATOR?
Utility locating is conducted by law for detecting buried utility lines such as natural gas, water and sewer lines, electric/hydro, voids, fibre and other underground cables that a public utility locating company like Ontario 1 Call will not locate. The data we provide from private utility location is used for safety to prevent damage to utilities and people in the desired drilling/excavation areas.
Considerable hazards such as gas lines, private electrical lines, underground storage tanks, natural obstructions and other risky facilities unknown underground MUST be located by law before digging (gardening or landscaping) or excavating (for a swimming pool or new porch.) The resulting damage that could occur from digging without conducting a private locate for underground utilities can be devastating and costly. Problems such as fire, explosions, electrocution from power lines, and many other consequences, such as water line bursts are the potential risks!
ACCURATE MAPPING OF UNDERGROUND SERVICES
At Target Radar, we ensure to verify that utility locates in an underground area are completed as accurately as possible. Our GPR scanning technology and expertise proves valuable for performing accurate outdoor locates. Radio detection is used mainly for locating live loaded A/C current and can be performed any time of the day as there are no harmful effects.
Knowing the exact locations of utility lines and pipes is crucial for planning projects to aid with the appropriate placement of supports, structures, landscaping or foundations. The types and location of these utilities are identified to prevent damage to the utilities and harm to the surrounding areas and workers.
