Water Lines Located Near Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO

A general contractor needed to identify the location of a suspected water line; they contacted GPRS to use Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). John Incorvaia, Project Manager for the St. Louis market was able to locate the suspected water lines with a GSSI 400 MHz antenna and mark the surface clearly for the client. Since the data is displayed in real time, the areas were marked easily, and the team could move forward with their process without worry of injury.

GPR is also used to determine the presence of underground utility lines and underground storage tanks in plants, factories, and other occupied spaces because it does not emit harmful radiation, produces virtually no noise or interference, and will not disturb business operations. It can also be used to determine the presence of obstructions in concrete prior to saw cutting or drilling.

Unmarked Graves Located in Family Plot Using GPR

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. was recently asked to assist on a project at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Cohutta, Georgia. GPRS was asked to determine the location of unmarked graves in a family plot in the cemetery. GPR is a great tool for the detection of unmarked graves, as it does not require any excavation to determine the presence of an object beneath the surface. GPR is also used to determine the presence of underground utility lines and underground storage tanks in plants, factories, and other occupied spaces because it does not emit harmful radiation, produces virtually no noise or interference, and will not disturb business operations. It can also be used to determine the presence of obstructions in concrete prior to saw cutting or drilling.

Soil Depth Above Ammo Bunkers Verified Using GPRS

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Virginia was utilized to detect the depth of soil on top of ammunition bunkers, at a military installation in VA. Regulations had changed to mandate non-destructive methods to verify soil depths on top of the bunker. They called Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. to locate GPRS Project Manager Josiah Donaldson verified the depth and location of several areas needing more soil coverage and put together a report that the customer could reference when ordering a work ticket for more soil to be added to the top of the bunkers.

Justin Rasanow of GPRS was contacted in order to perform the survey at this location. Using our 400MHz antenna radar equipment and RD-7000, we were able to map out all of the anomalies which were running through the areas of concern as well as provide depths to the tops of the anomalies found. The contractor was pleased with our results and felt relieved that they could move forward with their expansion planning.

Below is a photo taken on-site which depicts Justin Rasanow scanning the area of concern using our 400MHz antenna.

Environmental Restoration Company Uses GHPRS at Air National Guard Base

Environmental Restoration Company Uses GPR at Air National Guard Base

GPRS was recently contacted by an environmental restoration company that was working on a project at the Air National Guard Base in Oklahoma. Their team was working to prevent possible contamination in the area by boring for soil samples and installing monitoring wells. Before drilling in these areas, the underground utilities needed to be identified and marked so they could be avoided. Ground Penetrating Radar with assistance from a Radio Detection device were used to properly detect the utilities so the team could safely work in these areas. Andy Dermer – GPRS Oklahoma – examined the areas in question and mapped out the obstructions so they could drill with confidence. Since the data is displayed in real time, the areas were marked easily, and the team could move forward with their process without worry of injury.
