Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) digital imaging technology has made a significant impact over the past few years in determining the location and depth of underground or obscure objects and conditions.
New York Leak Detection, Inc. uses Ground Penetrating Radar and a variety of cutting-edge digital electronics to scan and map the subsurface in real time.
Ground Penetrating Radar is a non-instrusive, non-destructive technique that produces images similar to an X-ray without the hazards of radiography.
GPR is the preferred method for:
Locating metallic and non-metallic pipes, utility cable banks, and underground storage tanks (USTs)
Scanning construction areas prior to boring and drilling
Determining depth of bedrock formations
Delineating leach fields
Locating support cables, structural steel, and rebar in parking and bridge construction
Locate live power cables in concrete
Landfill boundary mapping
Locate possible sinkholes or structural voids
Ground Penetrating Radar is cost effective due to minimal interruption of operations, as well as avoiding the high costs of damage and repairs due to excavation.
