After purchasing a small store in Providence, RI, the new owner quickly discovered that the property was once a gas station. In order to open her new business the old gas storage tanks needed to be removed. In order to obtain data through proper analysis, the owner contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of New England to scan the lot in order to detect the tank. GPRS detected anomalies consistent with that of UST’s and found not only one but four locations of UST’s. GPRS used a High Resolution 400MHz Antenna for the project that is able to scan concrete up to 15’ in depth with an incredible accuracy of +/- 1’ on the location and depth of the anomaly. GPRS marked the edges of the tanks on the surface and created a report so that the owner had verification Underground Storage Tanks were present in the property.

GPRS was contacted by a local contractor to locate all utilities along 2 easements. Natural gas, sewer, high pressure water and an electric lines were located successfully along the fence separating the two properties. GPRS was also able to provide an aerial image of all findings which is extremely valuable to the contractor due to the area being heavily overgrown with tall grass. After locating the utilities and taking measurements along the easements, the data was turned into a google earth aerial image.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of California was contacted by a home owner to locate the main gas line that enters his property. He had determined that the gas line was leaking and producing a distinctive smell. The homeowner attempted to locate the gas line by using the existing plans he was provided by the previous owner, which resulted in having several trenches in different locations around the property. He decided to leave it to the Experts in GPR and contacted Freddy Espinal with GPRS. “We were able to locate the main gas line that comes from the street and found where it 45’s into the property in less than an hour” stated Espinal. The line actually runs underneath an additional guest house and found the line at 3’ in most areas. The trenches dug up by the homeowner were nowhere near the actual findings. Upon request we marked the finding using flags on the turf in order to avoid painting it.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on an undisclosed site in North Carolina to determine if there were utilities in a designated area prior to doing any excavating for trenching. During this process we were able to mark out power, and data lines in the areas where they had planned on digging. Curtis Hoag used a 400 MHz antenna along with radio detection and marked out all utilities located. The client was able to excavate the area without hitting any utilities which saved them from costly repairs.

GPRS was contacted by an environmental company to perform an Underground Storage Tank (UST) search in Glassport, PA. No UST’s were located but potential UST pits were found. We know that the area marked with paint was dug up at some point due to the disturbed soil. Knowing the locations of the pits allows the environmental company to focus their soil samples around the potential contaminated locations.
