he ‘Water Lance Method’ is typically used on uneven surfaces, extreme slide slopes, vertical walls, and can tolerate slightly wet and dirty sites. This method uses the same principle as previously; an induced electric current generated above the liner and grounded to the subgrade. In this case the mobile detection device consists of a lance or wand (tube), specialized ohm meter, pressure nozzle, and hose.
