InfraMap performs a variety of tasks in the completion of utility locating assignments for transportation, utility, and design projects.

These services include:

  • Air/vacuum excavation with survey and CADD, Utility Quality Level A
  • Full service designating, survey and CADD, Utility Quality Level B
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) utility locating services
  • Proposed structure clearing (such as drainage structures, pole bases, environment engineering soil borings, etc.) by sweeping electronically, excavating and documenting all utilities in conflict
  • Electrical/telephone manhole inspection and detailing
  • Reconnaissance and occupation of existing survey control

ASCE Standard 38-02: Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of
Existing Subsurface Utility Data

Utility Quality Level:  A professional opinion of the quality and reliability of utility information. Such reliability is determined by the means and methods of the professional.  Each of the four existing utility data quality levels is established by different methods of data collection and interpretation.

Utility Quality Level A:  Precise horizontal and vertical location of utilities obtained by the actual exposure (or verification of previously exposed and surveyed utilities) and subsequent measurement of subsurface utilities, usually at a specific point.  Minimally intrusive excavation equipment is typically used to minimize the potential for utility damage.  A precise horizontal and vertical location, as well as other utility attributes, is shown on plan documents.  Accuracy is typically set to 15-mm vertical and to applicable horizontal survey and mapping accuracy as defined or expected by the project owner.

InfraMap has developed its own non-destructive vacuum system. For more information please click here, Utilivac®

Utility Quality Level B:  Information obtained through the application of appropriate surface geophysical methods to determine the existence and approximate horizontal position of subsurface utilities. Quality level B data should be reproducible by surface geophysics at any point of their depiction. This information is surveyed to applicable tolerances defined by the project and reduced onto plan documents.

Utility Quality Level C:  Information obtained by surveying and plotting visible above-ground utility features and by using professional judgment in correlating this information to Quality Level D information.

Utility Quality Level D:  Information derived from existing records or oral recollections.
