Environmental Drilling

EPD mai ntains its subsidiary, Environmental Probing & Drilling, LLC (EPD) to support consultant's needs in soil and groundwater investigations.

Direct Push

The primary drilling service. Direct Push is the most efficient, effective, and technically accurate drilling method for many sites. One advantage of direct push technology is that soil samples can be collected at discrete depths via our Dual Tube System. This system allows cost effective sampling beneath perched water/saturated soils, sampling in collapsing soils and ensures that samples are not cross-contaminated by upper soil zones.

Discrete Soil or Continuous Core Sampling
Groundwater (GW) Sampling - via tooling

Soil Gas Sampling
Remedial Injections

Assessment Wells 1"
Marine Sediment Sampling
Pre-Pack GW Monitoring Well Installation 1" & 2"
Pre-Dredging Sediment Investigations

Hollowstem Augering

Hollowstem auguring services enhance direct push capabilities and are offered for sites where direct push cannot solely complete the scope of work.

Staff Environmental Field Services

EPD staff routinely collects/log soil/groundwater samples on small, but remote projects, for our client. This saves the client valuable staff travel time and contributes to the overall profitability of the project. EPD can submit samples to client laboratory of choice and/or provide turnkey report to our client.

Site Investigation Field Services
Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I and Phase II)
Groundwater Monitoring Programs
UST Services
Drilling Rig Geologist
Quarterly Groundwater Monitoring
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)

Water well certifications are held by EPD staff for a variety of states, ensuring compliance with environmental regulatory agencies during subsurface investigation activities. EPD maintains 40-hour HAZWOPER training for all staff, as well as First Aid/CPR and annual on-going education. EPD staff also possesses Loss Prevention System training recognized by multiple petroleum processing Corporations.

EPD provides $5,000,000 insurance coverage as a standard rate and can supplement this on an as needed project basis. Payment/Performance bonds are available to applicable projects.

Ground Penetrating Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a valuable tool in identifying underground utilities, buried tanks and other subsurface anomalies. GPR emits an electromagnetic pulse into the ground that records echoes and builds an image from the echoes. Basically, GPS creates a picture of the subsurface.

Ground Penetrating Radar Applications:

Identify underground storage tanks
Locating pipes, conduits, or other buried utilities
Locate plastic pipe along with other non-metallic objects
Confirm As Built Drawings
Clear Site Plan for New Construction
Identify Sinkholes, Unmarked cemeteries and grave locations
Archaeological Studies

Ground Penetrating Radar can detect objects as deep as 30 to 40 feet. However, it is best suited for depth up to 15 feet below ground surface. Penetration depth is dependent on soil conditions and or surface conditions and the electrical conductivity of the soil. GPR can be used in variety of media including concrete, pavement, rock, soil, ice and fresh water. Link to Soil Suitability Map for GPR: Ground-Penetrating Radar Soil Suitability Maps | NRCS Soils

The advantage of GPR is that it is fast, reliable and is very safe. GPR does not use any radiation.

EPD can provide this service individually or in conjunction with Environmental Subsurface Investigation. Our ability to package both GPR survey and soil/groundwater sampling into one (1) mobilization provides timelier project completion and budget savings to you, our Client.

EPD is able to cost competitively service all areas of the United States lower 48 and in Canada/Mexico as well. We also offer service agreements with fixed pricing for repetitive scopes of work or for large property portfolios.

EPD continually strives to enhance our turnkey environmental site assessment field services. Our success is based on building long-term relations by proving consistent and cost effective results.
