Concrete Scanning and Utility locates at YLW Kelowna International Airport

A number of plumbing, water and gas facilities located just below the concrete slab at Kelowna International Airport prior to concrete cutting and excavating. One can observe that no tracer wire is present on the yellow gas line. The ramifications of a struck gas line at an airport could be catastrophic. GPR was performed to detect metallic and non-metallic targets in and below the concrete slab.
