Mt. Holly, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2014 -- As March has arrived and golf courses have opened for the spring season, maintenance crews may begin to notice their irrigation system has been affected by the precipitation the winter has produced. Poor irrigation is detrimental for golf courses, as the sleek and wet grass will dissuade golfers from playing their course. For an accurate location of the irrigation pipes and lines, Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC is announcing their services for irrigation and drainage mapping of golf courses this spring.
With their reliable Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, the technicians from Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC can locate irrigation lines without damaging the greens or fairways. The subsurface imaging on golf courses is ideal for mapping the exact locations of underground utilities without digging and altering the conditions of the course. GPR uses radar energy pulses that is safer than the radar that cell phones produce and stores the information it collects into its internal memory where it can be analyzed with the use of a computer. The antenna connected to the GPR is an important component of the technology as lower frequency antennas can penetrate deeper into the ground.
Once the professionals utilize their GPR to scan the course, customers can choose whether they’d like to mark key points of irrigation pipes with flags—to provide an indication to golfers that the ground is under repair—or an in-depth CAD drawing that shows the locations and exact depth of the irrigation and drainage lines. Either option will be useful to course maintenance personnel, as they’ll be able to tell exactly where the pipes are, and to avoid those areas until a repair has been made.
The GPR technology will save course owners time and money when planning to improve the irrigation system, or remodel the course layout for more competitive play. Other services provided by Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC include bridge deck analysis and concrete scanning.
