Ground Penetrating Radar and Electromagnetic Utility Clearance
As part of an environmental company, we often sought out the services of GPR companies for all of our Phase II Environmental Site Assessments. We relied on GPR and Electromagnetic equipment for utility, boring and well clearance, as well as for UST location. Everyone associated with Reveal Radar has a background in Telecommunications, Environmental or the Construction industries. We understand what our clients need and with offices in CT and NH, we are able to service all of New England.
WHAT IS GPR?
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method used to detect and map subsurface structures and anomalies. GPR works much the same way as conventional radar used on aircraft and boats. An energy pulse is transmitted into the earth and a receiver reads any reflection of that pulse and interprets it. GPR is used to located objects such as Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and tank graves, foundations and footings, burial graves and other subsurface structures before an excavation project is started. Besides Environmental and construction applications, GPR is used by engineers to locate the reinforcement bars in concrete and by law enforcement for forensic applications.

This six inch pipe was encountered at approximately six feet below grade. The repair took 3.5 hours, and contaminated soil had to be removed and disposed of in accordance with state and federal regulations. A GPR survey might have avoided this costly delay and repair.
