Not an uncommon occurrence – fortunately, the collapse injured no one in this instance.
Did you know, you can use Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to detect hidden cavities before they collapse to create sinkholes? The ImpulseRadar Raptor 3D GPR Array offers an effective and efficient way of capturing data over long distances, or large areas, to quickly and accurately determine the presence of cavities, or other subsurface features and objects. You can use this valuable information to allocate resources for active preventative maintenance to mininmise potential disruption and financial losses.
