Pipeline Leak Detection

Pipeline Leak Detection & Leak location

Over the last 60 years several leaks have been found along waste transfer pipelines which could pose significant short-term risk to workers and long-term risk to groundwater. These pipelines were used to transfer multiple waste streams from the reprocessing facilities, between waste tank farms, and from tank to tank. A review of these failures showed corrosion attacking from the outside of the pipe as one of the primary factors in pipeline leaks.
