Our Mission

We provide the most accurate and detailed results possible, whilst having a client focus that is unparalleled by anyone else. Simply being the best at what we do isn’t enough. ELS will go above and beyond to locate and mark utilities in your scoped areas.

Environmental Location Systems employs a team of dedicated Civil Engineers, Geophysicists, Utility Locators, GPR Technicians and Surveyors to  assist in the location and alignment of underground utilities.

The safety of our staff and our clients is of the upmost importance, that’s why rather than focusing on what we have found, we spend more time detailing what we haven’t.
