Geophysical Survey Beginning January 1


Dawson Geophysical will be conducting a geo-physical survey throughout the eastern side of Midland, beginning in January.

During this time, Dawson employees will be placing seismic-recording devices along streets and alleys. The equipment consists of a small yellow box with a string of wires, along with a white box. Prior to placement of the equipment in a particular area, residents should expect to receive a flyer notification, which includes a picture of the equipment.

Dawson will send “vibrator buggies” along roads to generate an energy source into the group. This activates the seismic reader equipment. The vibrator buggies may be accompanied by police for the purpose of directing traffic.

The survey will cover areas of the city East of Midkiff Road, and extending into Martin County. Dawson Geophysical is not performing this work on behalf of the City of Midland. The company applied for and was granted a permit to place the seismic-recording boxes on public streets and City property.

Any questions or concerns may be directed to Robert Elmore or Will Elmore, Dawson Geophysical, (432) 458-3473.
