Environmental Drilling is used to determine the existence of contamination in soil or groundwater. Discrete undisturbed soil and groundwater samples are recovered from the subsurface in order to evaluate, monitor and remediate contamination impacting the environment. This form of drilling requires the use of clean, non-contaminated above and belowground equipment, in order to provide accurate sample integrity and eliminate the possibility of cross contamination between sampling locations.
Geotechnical Drilling is used to investigate the stability, classification, and change of soil type as a function of depth and location. It can also be used to define groundwater depth, movement and location and its impact on the soil. Drilling, soil sampling, and the installation of wells and in-situ instrumentation are all used to provide data for engineering and design prior to construction.This data is then used to determine the type and use of preventative measures to mitigate possible settlement, soil movement, or the presence of groundwater that may adversely impact existing or proposed structures.
