Locating Underground Tanks
Encompass Inspections was contacted by an Oklahoma state agency requiring locate services to be conducted on a lot that once held a gas station. The agency needed to know the location of any and all remaining underground storage tanks (UST’s) and associated product piping that remain on the premises. Unknown and unmaintained USTs create a huge safety hazard for the nearby community and prevent any future development on the lot.
How We Responded
Utilizing top of the line subsurface surveying equipment, Encompass Inspections set out to locate and mark any found USTs and associated piping. The survey was conducted using a Ground Penetrating Radar and Magnetometer. Scanning the area in a interlocking, grid-like pattern allows for accurate and efficient subsurface locating.
Results We Delivered
Encompass Inspections provided the accurate location of all found underground utilities, UST’s, and associated subsurface piping. All underground findings were utility mapped out with each target’s GPS coordinates to provide our client with an accurate and detailed map to facilitate future development on or around the lot.
The accurate digital mapping of all found utilities, USTs, and product piping provides our client with the information required to safely excavate and develop on this lot. This information not only saves time digging to or around specific utilities, but also eliminates the risk of striking previously unknown lines or USTs. Damaging existing utilities/USTs can cause damage to both equipment and personnel, along with adding unnecessary costs to projects.
