Ground penetrating radar used at Odd Fellows Cemetery

On March 17, the front portion of Odd Fellows Cemetery in Amelia was x-rayed to make sure those resting in peace were not disturbed before construction begins for the turning lane at the Tall Trees Development.

Jason Hammann, from Bloodhound Underground Utility Locators, conducted a ground penetrating radar survey to determine if there were any unmarked burial sites located within the indicated areas of the cemetery property.

A Noggin Smart Cart, with a 250 MHz frequency Mid Range Antenna and LCD display was used to complete the portion of the survey. The Ground Penetrating Radar were calibrated to provide reflection signatures up to eight feet below the surface. There was nothing found that would be consistent with a burial vault. With this now complete we are able to continue to move forward with progress in the Village.

It is strongly believed that the addition of this turning lane will provide the residents and commuters passing through the village a safer route of travel and cut down on rear end collisions at that location.

    Hi would have any idea on how to get a hold of Odd Fellows who owns the Laurel Memorial Cemetery I have called the number on the sign and the mail box is always full. I can be reached at (513) 583-0881 or e-mail at

  2. Did that Noggin Smart Cart really x-rayed the front ground portion of the Odd Fellows Cemetery? That’s so awesome!

    GPR (ground penetrating radar) Is a method of locating underground utilities and other buried systems. This system is used often to create a map of what lies beneath the surface and is a very useful tool for construction, repair, and maintenance purposes.

    Moreover, the strength and the accurate frequency of the received signals should also be perceived smartly to understand the conductivity of the ground. For archaeological purposes, this ground penetrating radar is a very helpful tool and can be used to determine the density and depth of various archaeological locations. It is extremely useful for engineering purposes as well by providing a good idea of the underground objects before the digging starts hence saving a considerable amount of time as well.
