Our Approach

This scientific approach of designating and locating existing utilities produces detailed information for advanced planning and budget projections.
Using nondestructive techniques, SUE engineers identify potential conflicts among the various utilities and future designs.

Additional SUE services include utility mapping at appropriate SUE Quality Levels, utility design and relocation, communication of utility data, and utility agreement preparation. SUE is an essential element in the planning process as it reduces incidents of lost service and damage caused by cut cables or damaged pipelines.
