Case studies > Safeguarding public amenities
Potential savings in the order of tens of thousands of pounds were made recently at a major redevelopment site in the south of England. Available maps indicated the presumed route of a water main serving a local community of many thousand people.
A Zetica survey swiftly showed this information to be dangerously incorrect - the pipeline was shown to cross the site elsewhere. This enabled a timely replanning of engineering work before construction began. The substantial cost of damaging a major pipeline - and compromising a vital community amenity - was avoided.
In the same survey, Zetica also identified a previously unknown buried toxic waste site requiring specialist reclamation.
