Now here is a profession that is like weather forecasting, Locators that go out and try to locate under ground utilities so that they don’t get damaged during construction or replacement of the utility.
Most times they can not locate it with a precious measurement correctly. They are usually off by a meter and in some cases that I have experinced could’nt even find even though it was there.
Not sure if it’s the locating instrument or the people that are just to fucking lazy or are rushed, but the technology has to improve. If we can put a mechanical piece of equipment on Mars from earth then they should be able to locate utilities buried three feet in the ground with more accuracy that a meter, more like it should be within millimeters.
I’m am not saying all locators are stund kunts but from my experince alot are.
