SewerVUE’s parent company, Terraprobe Geoscience Corp. was hired by Carollo Engineers P.C. to undertake a high frequency ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey to investigate four interior joints of the 60-inch unlined RCP raw water Davis Aqueduct owned by the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District in Layton, Utah. This was a time critical project with the primary water supply shut down for several days for 500,000 people, about 1/4 of the state’s population. The line was dewatered and District staff removed repair clamps at the joints prior to the GPR survey. The purpose of the survey was to map pipe wall thickness, rebar configuration, ascertain the joint configuration and locate any voids outside of the pipe. GPR data successfully confirmed the rebar configuration and wall thickness in the four surveyed joints. The owner was pleased with the progress of the inspection and maintenance work overseen by Carollo’s infrastructure team that they called the local news station, KSL (NBC Affiliate) who ran a feature story of the project. SewerVUE was privileged to be a part of the story, and also to unveil the principles behind man entry Pipe Penetrating Radar.
