Ground Penetrating Radar Scan performed at Gas Facility

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Southern California was contacted by an environmental company in order to scan for drains at a gas plant in Marina Del Rey. The purpose of the scan was for the environmental firm to evaluate the number of drains onsite and the sizes to then determine whether the facility needs to add or replace drains. Due to the heavy rainfall earlier this year, the current drains were not exceeding expectations of draining the rain water down the steep slopes to the street which caused several mud slides onsite. We were able to find most drains up to 4’ with GPR, and we also used our Duct hunter to run through deeper lines to then locate them with Radio Detection 7000+. All findings were marked on the surface with paint and flags.

GPR scanning is a great tool to use for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits; it can also be used to scan for underground utilities prior to digging or excavating. GPRS has offices throughout the entire state of California and performs projects in cities like; Ventura, Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, Lancaster and the greater Los Angeles area.
