GPRS Used to Help Identify UST(s) and Abandoned Fuel Lines prior to Soil Boring Operations - Portsmouth, NH
An environmental firm had a project consisting of locating utilities on private property and investigating for suspected in place underground storage tanks, vent pipes or former UST pits prior to conducting environmental soil borings and monitoring wells in Portsmouth, NH. The scope of the project was to locate and identify any suspected utilities and or UST(s) in the area due to dated and possibly inaccurate record keeping. The Contractor decided to contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of New Hampshire after previously working with us on several large-scale projects. GPRS was able to complete the investigation within 2 hours and allowed the project to proceed without hitting a single utility line while also identifying suspected abandoned in place fuel lines that once ran to the fuel pumps. No UST’s in place were identified, however, the excavation pit and its limits were identified. The field technician was able to locate and annotate the depth of multiple previously unknown utilities as well as identify the location of several suspected former and existing UST related anomalies. Through the use of real time applications and an experienced technician GPRS was able to locate all of the utilities, and give the client an up to date and precise layout of what lies below.
At the job site, GPRS scanned multiple designated areas identified by onsite personnel and all utilities were mapped on the surface with marking paint/pin flags and given a depth to ensure precision. The General Contractor now had the information needed to proceed with the project without causing any delay in business. The General Contractor was enamored with the quality of work that was performed and the timely, efficient manner in which it was done.
