  GPRS Locates UST's in Richmond, Virginia

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Virginia was utilized to detect underground storage tanks (UST’s) in Hampton, VA. A prominent Environmental Company needed assistance in locating any UST’s for a client located right on the Chesapeake Bay. They called Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. to locate it. GPRS Project Manager Josiah Donaldson verified the location and direction of 2 UST’s and verified there were no more in an approximately 2 acre area. In this situation, GPRS was able to see what the client could not to verify the location of UST’s that had long since been forgotten underground.

GPRS Locates Underground Storage Tanks - Hampton, VA

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was called to assist in locating two underground storage tanks on a piece of property that was under contract to be sold. The property had 2 visible fill ports sticking up out of the ground and were fairly easy to locate, and identify the length and width of the 2 tanks. Soil samples were going to be taken on the property to determine if the tanks had leaked any fuel. The contractor called GPRS in to locate the tanks and utilities in the area where some soil borings were to take place. While locating utilities in the areas where the soil borings were to take place, there were pipes running into the ground that were seen. With the proper training, GPRS determined that these pipes were likely vent pipes that connected to old underground storage tanks.

After locating these vent pipes, we located four more tanks that were not expected to be on the property. One of the areas the contractor planned on doing soil boring was close to these four unexpected tanks. If GPRS had not been called out to scan this job-site, the contractor would have likely hit one of these tanks and created a hazardous environment with a fuel spill, resulting in thousands of dollars unexpected costs.
