Please review our site and pre-survey requirements here
- We need to have safe access to each of the sounding sites with our 4X4 vehicle (we can do remote soundings in acceptable weather which will have an additional cost dependent on the difficulty of access). Please note that at each site we need enough room to turn a pickup around.
- The area to be tested generally needs to be a minimum of 50 feet away from any type of electrical power source (primarily underground power, underground pipe lines or some buildings with major power supplies).
- Clients are asked to describe the survey site conditions when booking. We need to have enough shallow ground to drive (install) four 2-4 foot long 3/4-inch diameter electrodes into the soil. The electrodes are placed in a straight line and require an area that is approximately 16 feet long and 4 feet wide to complete each sounding. The ground should consist of no more than 25 % large gravel or stones. If the top 4 feet contains more than 25% large gravel, large stone or cobble, or bedrock, then more soundings may be required and special techniques may need to be implemented (at extra charge) to collect the data we require to make our recommendations.
- If there is any risk at all of under ground services that might be at or above 4 feet below ground surface anywhere near the area to be surveyed, the client should have underground locates carried out and have all in ground piping, wiring, gas lines or other services clearly marked well before we arrive to do the survey. Phone numbers below.
- Excessive hay, brush, or trees should be cut or mowed in the survey area. We prefer to survey on undisturbed ground. If the site has been excavated or recently leveled, disturbed ground may need to be removed.
- The client or the clients representative must meet us on site prior to the survey to identify the area to be surveyed, sign the survey agreement and arrange for payment (if not done previously check, cash or credit card accepted).
