Project Details

MFS performed topographic field survey services including locating the above ground physical features, as evident on site including visible utility hardware, utility mark-out, buildings, curbs, edge of pavement, drives, striping, sidewalks, fences, walls, utility/light poles, signs, trees (4 inches or greater), tree lines. First floor/garage floor elevations were determined at doorways. Cross sections of paved surfaces were surveyed at a minimum of 50’ intervals and at low/high points. Spot elevations were obtained at a spacing sufficient to develop contours at an interval of one foot. Breakline features such as top/bottom of curb, edge of pavement, top/bottom of slopes/swales/banks/walls, etc. were located.

MFS located the surface utilities surface hardware such as manholes, catch basins, trench drains, valve covers, utility/light poles, hydrants, etc. For storm drains and sanitary sewers, MFS obtained measurements to determine inverts and pipe sizes at accessible manholes and catch basins. Subsurface utilities such as water, gas, electric and communication were depicted based on surface features and available mapping.

Using Electro-Magnetic Pipe, Cable and Box Locators (EM) and ground penetrating radar (GPR), subsurface utility survey was performed to mark any underground metallic and non-metallic based pipes and cables. A survey base map and report were provided, which included tables listing coordinates and elevations of utility features and site features including structures, utilities, property boundaries, lead shielding, suspected underground storage tanks and other notable buried anomalies.
