Mainline Staking

Today we started the staking for the new mainline installation on the golf course. You will see orange and white flags located on the first five holes of the course signifying where the new components will be installed. These flags are placed using GPS technology, so that the locations are accurately sited and recorded for use in the as built maps of the new system.

Using GPS To Locate a Lateral Isolation Valve

Each point will be re-shot after various components are installed such as; valves, sprinklers, wire splices, satellites and pipe. These data points will be recorded and put into a functional map of the course that will allow me to quickly find anything on the golf course.
