Private Utility Locating At A 500 KV Substation
A general contractor had a project at a 500 kv Substation near Nashville, Tennessee where they needed to dig a long trench in order to run new electrical conduit. It was unknown what utilities they might encounter while excavating the new trench. Prior to proceeding, they contacted GPRS of Tennessee to gain the information needed to safely excavate so they didn’t compromise anything existing during the construction process.
