Let GPRS Investigate Before You Start Your Environmental Investigation

Ground Penetrating Radar Solutions - GPRS - of Asheville, North Carolina was contacted by an environmental consultant to locate any Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and utilities on the front side of an auto repair in Asheville, NC. The client was planning on removing the possible USTs and any piping from the historic filling station expected per the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps. An approximately 50 foot x 50 foot area was scanned and findings were marked with spray paint to allow the consultant to plan their excavation and avoid utilities. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) was able to find 3 likely USTs about 2 feet deep and associated piping leading to a possible pump island. The information we were able to supply to the client on site was extremely valuable. GPRS was able to mark its findings in real time so that the consultant and excavator could work directly with GPRS to solve problems and plan their excavation. The consultant was able to remove the USTs and gain the necessary info to further their investigation thanks to GPRS.

GPRS takes pride in keeping everyone safe onsite and helping solve problems that may come up while locating USTs and utilities. Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas for locating underground utilities before drilling soil borings, digging, or excavating, as well as locating underground storage tanks or tank “graves”. GPR can also be used to scan concrete and locate rebar, post tension cables, and conduits, including PVC pipes. GPR is one of the limited options available to locate USTs, GPRS is the biggest GPR company in the US and the project managers within GPRS are the best at what they do.
