ESE was hired by the golf course community to determine the condition of multiple underground steel culverts which connected various lakes around the course.
Some culverts ran under roadways which caused a need to ensure long term safety of the residents.
To determine metal loss of the corrugated steel culverts over time, ESE performed visual inspections and ultrasonic thickness measurements. This inspection required the use of professionally trained commercial divers (Callaway Marine Technologies) to enter the pipes to collect data and conduct the visual inspection.
The combined efforts ultimately provided the owner with a remaining service life prediction and future inspection schedule.
