ACS Underground Solutions can clear environmental test bores on any proposed sites. Test bore clearings are performed in the same manner as a utility mark out by attaching to the known utilities and sweeping the areas in a passive mode and using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) which allows the contractor to drill, excavate and perform their samples for the site.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a non-intrusive testing method used for a variety of locating purposes. GPR may be used for a broad range of engineering, environmental and construction applications. GPR is commonly used to detect and delineate buried waste materials (bulk and drummed); to locate buried utilities (metallic and non-metallic); to locate buried structural components; to locate voids in/or below concrete.
ACS Underground Solutions specializes in GPR for locating non-detectable objects underground that traditional locating methods have difficulty finding.
What we were asked to do for this project?
ACS Underground Solutions was contracted to clear ten (10) environmental test bore sites in Greenwich, CT. First location was at the old Mercedes-Benz building parking lot where we cleared eight (8) bore sites. Then we proceeded to the second site in the back parking lot of new Mercedes-Benz building and cleared two (2) additional bore locations.
What we accomplished to finish the project
All utilities were verified, marked out and the fiber optic communication conduits were traced. All areas were scanned with CAT and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Once each boring location was cleared of utilities it was painted green for “GO” and flagged. On this job site we did not come across a location that was not clear, however if that should have occurred and if desired by the client an alternate location could be determined, areas that are not clear to dig or drill are always painted red for “NO”.
