-- Ground Penetrating Radar is a tool that has been around for years. However, interpretation of oil tank sweep scans can be a work in progress. Environmental Systems high resolution ground penetrating radar can identify areas of possible soil contamination during routine oil tank sweeps. Once a soil disturbance is noted with the GPR extra cost soil boring are used to identify the disturbance. In many cases the tank has been removed for decades and all that is left are typically soil disturbance anomalies. Extra cost soil boring identify what the anomalies actually are. In this case a area of heating oil contaminated soil was found, cost the property owner over $ 25,000 for the clean-up. Just because a oil tank was not found during a tank sweep does not mean oil tank contamination does not exist. Ground Penetrating Radar can identify metallic and non metallic objects Old abandoned septic tanks, buried concrete, sink holes, construction debris, roof shingles and car parts can be identified. Ground Penetrating Radar is also used during our comprehensive Environmental Phase I and II investigations to identify areas of environmental concern.
