GPR Scanning for Underground Storage Tanks
When a contractor wanted to investigate if any buried USTs or other objects were present at the site, they called GPRS, LLC. We used a GPR 400 MHz antenna to scan the area. The customer was during the survey notified of our newly acquired GSSI Profiler EMP-400, and agreed to use it on the next project with the same objective to aid the GPR survey.
The Profiler EMP-400 is powerful electromagnetic induction tool. It is a frequency domain profiling system. The profilers wide range of frequency selections allow it to be used for a variety of surveys, from locating buried metal to locating plumes and landfill delineations. In this case it will be used to detect buried metal at the site. It future surveys, it will help narrow down the locations of interest for the GPR survey in order to locate the possible UST’s. With all techniques and equipment used, GPRS was able to locate the buried anomalies, possible UST location, and mark it on the surface.
