West Valley Demonstration Project Gas Line Installation

West Valley, NY

Project Objective

Before drilling for a new on-site gas line, the client required information about underground objects and utilities.

Unique Project Features

Encorus Group’s Non-Destructive Examination techniques can locate underground lines and equipment without the need to dig and risk hitting a utility line.

Encorus Group Solution

Encorus Group staff used Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), a Magnetic Flux meter (used to detect metal objects), and Radio Utility Locator (which uses sound waves to locate underground objects), to find buried lines and other objects on site. This was used to locate as many objects and utilities as possible in order to determine the directional drill routing for the installation of the new gas line on site.

Specific Project Tasks

  • Underground utility location
