Online Utility Report service for The Environment Agency
The Environment Agency have used Groundwise’ Utility Report Online service since 2007 and have processed many hundred of searches. The searches predominantly involve works on sites such as the one shown on the map here. This image is the search area as defined by the EA using our own innovative mapping system and tools for drawing boundaries for the extent of sites. The base map is from the Ordnance Surveys. For this site the interest is fencing along a stretch of river in Leicestershire. Ultimate this site may require a contractor breaking the ground to carry out further works. The EA use a Groundwise Utility Report Online service to collate information on below ground hazards that may be found before such work takes place.
Groundwise carried out the researches on this site and provided the EN with a pack of utility data, as was expected in such an undeveloped area not a great deal of utility apparatus was found, however, running along the site was an electricity cable belonging to Central Networks that will need to be taking into account by any on site workers.
