2D Resistivity Imaging for Locating Concrete Pipe


There are 8 wells that suply water to the communnity through about 2m diamter concrete aqueduct. 



The main subject of the field tes was to determine the geotechnical site characterization of the area to correlate the results obtained through the 2D resistivity imaging and the infromation of the concrete aqueduct. 



The determination of site characterization was performed by AGI SuperSting™ Wi-Fi R8/IP/SP instrument with 42 electrodes and 3 meters electrode spacing with a mixed array of dipole-dipole and Schlumberger The data Processing with EarthImager™ 2D software.



The most outstanding result was the location of the old concrete aqueduct that supplies water to the Santa Ana community in San José, Costa Rica.
