We have the equipment and experience to drill and install bedrock monitoring wells, recovery or injection wells, alluvial wells or deep anode beds for cathodic protection systems. We have considerable experience in drilling and installing high-quality bedrock wells, often having multiple casings to segregate contaminated zones from producing aquifers.
Another area of our expertise involves drilling multiple boreholes into abandoned coal mines in support of a geotechnical study to evaluate the stability of the coal pillars and the potential for mine subsidence. A certain amount of care must be exercised, while drilling, to minimize the disturbance of the coal pillars and the mine roof rock. Other precautionary measures are taken to vent-off mine gasses, while drilling.
Also, we have the capability to do air rotary drilling with our ATV’s and Geoprobe Direct-Push Probe rigs.
