Abstract

Use of a hydrophobic material wherein the material is disposed adjacent at least a portion of a piece of underground equipment whereby a water barrier is formed at the portion(s) of said equipment to essentially isolate the equipment from water, including constituents in that water at those portion(s). The use is particularly suited an application of protecting a sensor adapted to sense a hydrocarbon leaked into the soil. A method for detecting such a hydrocarbon is also disclosed.
