Soil Samples, Black Lake
Type of work: Environmental drilling
Description: Drill and take soil samples for the purpose of investigating possible soil contamination by a nearby dry cleaning facility. Project required full decontamination before and after drilling. Installed a 2-inch monitoring well and a submersible pump to enable ongoing monitoring.
Challenges: The site had limited accessibility, requiring drilling on a steep slope using a track-mounted drill rig. Our CME-850X drill rig is able to drill on a steep slope without having to “level” off during drilling.
