The combination of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), Geophysical Array Technologies, and reduced use of exposures, e.g. vacuum excavation, may proof to be best way to negotiate cost and risk. SUE is an engineering practice concerned with obtaining information about the location of underground utilities with different levels of reliability/accuracy. Knowing the capabilities and limitations of SUE methods used and their associated risk allows for proper management of a subsurface construction projects. Accurate 3D locations of buried utilities derived by SUE are not only desired for safety reasons, but also to expedite design and construction projects often providing cost savings in the process.
