Public utility systems are often run underground; some by the very nature of their function, others for convenience or aesthetics. Before digging, local governments often require that the underground systems' locations be denoted and approved, if it is to be in the public right-of-way. Utility location is the process of identifying and labeling public utility mains that are underground.

In some locations, major oil and gas pipelines, national defense communication lines, mass transit, rail and road tunnels also compete for space underground Quick access to information.
We successfully traced Transco 30yr old lines. We dived the all interested area in grid according to survey location then run the GPR across and along the water line there we got utility signature on the depth of 3.4to 3.7 m. Post the signature on G.P.R. a pit at the location was dug to check if the depth is correct. To achieve this, we divide the Interested area in grids along or across the line for find out the exact location.
