Trusted Partners - Underground Oil Tank Scans
ScanPlus provides GPR services to all locations within the Nanaimo Regional District including the City of Nanaimo, Lantzville, Parksville, and Qualicum Beach. Our Remote Sensing Property Scan is designed to target potential underground heating oil storage tanks (USTs), and/or a nest; the remnant hole where a UST was previously buried. A visual inspection for clues of potential USTs is completed prior to scanning. Some of the indicators our technicians look for include existing fill or vent pipes, evidence of historic fill or vent pipes, current and/or previous boilers/furnaces, historic copper lines, existing above ground storage tanks (ASTs), depressions in the ground, and concrete or asphalt patches. It should be noted, Remote Sensing is not 100% effective in all situations, but ScanPlus provides the best non-intrusive means of subsurface detection available in the market today.
With GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar), EM (electromagnetic) locators and MAG meters (Magnetic flow) we are able to ocate and/or confirm the exact location of utilities like water, sewer, sanitary, gas, telephone and data and fibre optics. We can also locate irrigation, underground storage tanks (USTs) and concrete chests and other embedments down to 3M (12 feet) in optimal soil and site conditions). With post processing software we are able to clean up the data and determine landfill boundaries, water table depth and most underground anomalies such as unmarked graves, abandoned mine shafts, etc.
