Subsurface Exploration

RGE has the capability to complete soil borings with in-house personnel using truck, rubber tire, and track-mounted All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) drills. Drill supervisors are licensed well-drillers, and crews have completed the OSHA 40-Hour Health and Safety training.

Borings are completed with solid flight, hollowstem auger and by rotary wash methods. Samples are obtained by split-spoon and thin walled tube methods. Bedrock samples are obtained with HX diamond bit rock coring equipment. Environmental explorations, including installation of ground monitoring wells, are completed.
