Identification of Location of Buried USTs

Electromagnetic Survey To Determine Location of USTs SAF Grant # 454767-68


Purpose of study was to determine if USTs were located in the ground on the site. Survey was performed over a 450 ft x 225ft area located south of Francis Street, between Eleventh and Twelfth Streets in Ecorse, MI.  Collected EM data with an EM61 High Sensitivity Metal Detector and recorded it by an integrated data logger (Polycoder 600) with two channel information.  Subsequently transferred data to an in-office desk top PC computer for processing and interpretation.  Performed mapping programs using subsequent processing and interpretation.  Presented data in two basic forms: contour maps and linear profile.  Plotted profile form data with a 0 to 2000 millivolt (mV)  vertical scale to present a common scale to provide uniformity in the data presentation.  Examined profile forms/graphs to reveal anomalies.  Found two large anomalies that appeared in suspect locations of historically buried USTs. Prepared report.  Completed project within time and budgetary constraints.
