Liquid Integrity System (LIS) have been developing methods for detection of defects in liquid storage sites since being founded in 2012. These sites have varied from potable drinking water sites to acid tailings and everything in between. Drawing on a background in electrical geophysics and a desire to improve leak detection while minimising impact to the client’s operations, LIS has developed equipment for monitoring and surveying a wide variety of sites. Our biggest challenge over these years (like many tech-based business) has been ongoing development and adaption – our clients continuously push us to expand into new detection scenarios. In this talk we will discuss the range of techniques that we have developed, and describe some of the varied settings that we have worked in. There is a lot to talk about and lots of stories that we think most field geophysicists can relate to.
