Service Location

We can help you locate service assets including storm water pipes, sewer pipes, wells, shafts and ducts.

City Coast Services has a dedicated team of utility locators who are all DBYD Certified. The team can help you map and protect all underground assets on your site. We use both electromagnetic cable locating and ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology, to designate underground utilities. All our work complies to the Australian Standard AS-5488.1:2019 classification of subsurface utility information and a detailed locate report is completed and sent directly from site to the client, with clear and accurate colour coded utility markings.

For detailed reports of existing assets, including storm water pipes, sewer pipes, wells, shafts and ducts, we deploy closed circuit television (CCTV) technology. City Coast Services’ CCTV inspection service allows our expert team to inspect, survey and record to WSA 05-2008 & WSA 05-2013 standards. All City Coast Services’ CCTV operators are accredited to record and report to codes and standards. These CCTV inspections can be recorded, allowing for documentation; and all our cameras are fitted with high-powered sondes that, when combined with our locaters, allow us to pinpoint any locations needing repair or further inspection. With pan and tilt cameras capable of zoom, we can inspect and identify the smallest of imperfections in the largest of networks.

City Coast Services can help you identify:

• Underground Utilities

• Pipes

• Voids

• Underground Tanks

• Cables

• Blockages

• Water and Gas Leaks

Types of Service Location work we do

Used to locate conductive utilities such as metallic pipes, electrical and communication cables.
Ground penetrating radar is a geophysical method of locating that uses radar pulses to image what is under the ground. GPR is a non-destructive method that uses electromagnetic radiation in the microwave band (UHF/VHF frequencies). GPR detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures and has a wide range of applications including locating rock, soil, ice, water, pavements, and underground structures. It is also used to detect changes in material, voids and cracks. We can also locate nonconductive material, such as Poly or Nylon gas lines, blue brute and uPVC water mains, empty conduits, underground storage tanks and possible underground voids.
