Locating Lost Wells

EPI Geophysics can locate missing monitoring wells that have been accidentally or intentionally buried in all types of ground surfaces for environmental clients. Recently, EPI Geophysics was contracted to locate a monitoring well that had been paved over with asphalt in a parking lot at a commercial property in Mount Holly, New Jersey.

The top of the well head, thought to be located just under the asphalt, was actually located at a top depth of about 10” below the asphalt using ground penetrating radar (GPR). The location of the well head was confirmed with the use of a metal detector. The well was filled in with bentonite and abandoned.
