GPR & Private Utility Location

PM Environmental owns and operates the latest Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Units equipped with a 400 MHz antenna and a powerful datalogger/software package that detects and maps utility pipes, shallow engineering structures, and performs numerous environmental applications.

Our staff has received extensive training in the use of this equipment and are qualified to interpret and present the data and results of field investigations in a concise, easily understandable manner.

Utility Detection and Mapping

Knowledge of existing utility location prior to subsurface work is essential in avoiding costly mistakes. Utilities that are made of metal, PVC, or any other material that has different dielectric constants than the surrounding subsurface soils or rocks can easily be located.

Environmental Assessments

Underground Storage Tanks (USTs), drums, hoist reservoirs can be located with the use of GPR to help pinpoint sources of contamination and aid in site remediation.

Archaeology/Law Enforcement/Forensics

Information from non-destructive GPR surveys can identify and delineate excavation limits.

GPR Data Collection

PM Environmental, Inc.’s GPR units provides supreme image clarity, portable field-ready rugged construction that allows for real time, in-situ interpretation in both two and three dimensions. PM Environmental typically utilizes a 400MHz antennae, which is best suited for detection and mapping of utility pipes as well as shallow (0-12.0 feet) engineering and environmental applications.

GPR Post Data Processing

PM Environmental utilizes Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI) RADAN 7 software, which allows for target specific applications. RADAN allow the GPR data to be filtered, viewed, and manipulated in multiple interactive 2D and 3D views.
