    Course Description:

    Underground Utility Mapping – Distinguishing the surveyors role

    The presence of subsurface utilities on a project site can introduce hazards to engineering and construction projects.  Therefore, obtaining  surveyed utility  locations is a critical component in the development of a project and  to insure digging safety.  This discussion will serve as an overview of utility mapping, technology  and the roles of project stakeholders.

    There seems to be a common misunderstanding in the responsibility of the roles of each project stakeholder.  In this course, we will one-call versus private utility location, define subsurface utility engineering, and discuss the importance of the surveyor to the process.  We will review utility location techniques and advances in mapping technology.  The objective of this presentation is to clarify common misunderstandings in the utility location process.

    Kate McKinley, PG

    Kate McKinley is a Senior Geophysicist and Vice President at THG Geophysics, a full service geophysical firm dedicated to mapping the shallow subsurface and to providing utility location services.  With almost 20 years of experience in geophysics and business development, Kate still enjoys the everyday adventure of applying the principles of physics to imaging what lies below the surface. She has, gratefully, had the opportunity to provide these services to diverse projects in engineering, environmental, and archaeological disciplines.

    Kate enjoys sharing her experiences through teaching, helping to develop her trade through her activity in several professional organizations and helping her community by participating in several local, civic organizations.
