Locating and preventing cross bores demands best practices. It requires a joint effort between gas, water, telecommunication, and other utility companies and contractors to reduce risks.
About our Cross Bore Locating services:
- We use fiberglass traceable rodders for tracing non-metallic underground pipes to avoid major road disruptions and/or excessive digging.
- Our state-of-the-art acoustic technology is used to find piping systems with missing or broken tracer wire – no system access required.
- CBL locates all types of pipe, including plastic in minutes, and works on asphalt, concrete, grass, gravel, and soil.
- When practical, we may also use subsurface utility verification (camera inspection, ground penetrating radar, acoustic, etc.).
By identifying where underground utilities intersect, an obstruction has occurred, or a cross bore created, you can prevent disaster and avoid costly mistakes.
