A  geophysical survey of the area surrounding the site of an August 26th explosion in downtown Wheatley is underway.

Chatham-Kent General Manager of Engineering and Infrastructure Services Thomas Kelly said today the survey will employ ground penetration radar and electromagnetic technology to map the subsurface and provide detailed information on soil features, non-metallic objects and the exact location of any abandoned steel cased wells.

As well, gas monitoring has been deployed throughout the site.

“The goal of this work is to determine the precise source of the gas emission,” Kelly said.  “Once this information is known, next steps will be to determine the appropriate remediation strategy.”

The work is expected to take two weeks but that timetable could vary depending on what is found as the project proceeds.
