Assessing buried infrastructure deep under buried infrastructure
In preparing for its water future, the Region of Peel (Peel) adopts a unique assessment strategy for a newly constructed potable water transmission main that extends deep underground through the heart of Peel Region. The effort is paying off, with Peel decision makers gaining a better understanding of this pipeline as it comes into service.
Evolution of underground aqueducts in the Hellenic world
Historical and archaeological evidence shows that ancient Hellenes had developed underground aqueducts since the prehistoric times. However, innovative methods of underground aqueducts were developed in Hellas mainly during the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman periods. Since the well-known tunnel at the island of Samos, Hellas, was designed and begun its construction (ca. 550 bc) by Eupalinos of Megara (the first civil engineer in history), several underground tunnels (with and without well-like...
No Negative Impacts to Underground Infrastructure and Communication Lines using RegenOx at Site ...
Kennedy Space Center, FL The Launch Equipment Shop (LES) at Kennedy Space Center, part of NASA`s famed Vehicle Assembly Budding complex, has conducted highly specialized manufacturing fabrication, and assembly work for the space program since the early 1960s. Leaks from an underground storage tank (UST) led to notable fuel oil contamination of soil and groundwater, including a layer of light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPLt up to 14` thick « some areas Total recoverable petroleum hydrocarbon (TRPH) levels...
Pipeline infrastructure renewal at Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department
Abstract Various governmental, professional and private studies have shown that the replacement costs of underground pipeline infrastructure is excessive and that best practice approaches for infrastructure risk management promote condition assessment programs to understand the actual condition of individual pipe sections in order to best allocate limited capital replacement and rehabilitation funding. The key element to these programs is a physical inspection of the underground piping which provides the...
Locating pipes and cables case study
GPR can be used to determine the location and depth of metallic, non-metallic, plastic, concrete and asbestos-concrete utilities, and cables (power, signal, etc.)Locating of City UtilitiesThe VIY3-300 GPR was used for locating of city utilities (water, gas, sewer, etc.). This profile shows city utilities at a depth of 1.2 and 2.0 meters (wave speed is 130 meters per microsecond).This profile was acquired by a dirt surface and crossed pavement. This is clearly seen in the interval from 2.5 to 6 meters. You can see...
