Subsurface Investigations

Overview

Subsurface Investigations are conducted when Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) or Areas of Concerns (AOCs) are identified at a property. The scope of work includes marking out the property for DigSafe; the advancement of soil borings; and the installation and development of groundwater monitoring wells. Soil and groundwater samples are collected and analyzed by appropriate methods depending on the type of contamination that was identified in the RECs or AOCs. A report is prepared comparing the findings of the soil and groundwater sampling to applicable regulations.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Survey

GPR surveys can be a valuable resource for environmental professionals and are commonly performed during environmental subsurface investigations. GPR is a geophysical method that uses high-frequency-pulsed electromagnetic waves to image the subsurface. GPR  is a non-intrusive method of surveying the sub-surface to investigate underground utilities and to locate Underground Storage Tanks (USTs). GPR has capacity to work through a wide variety of surfaces including soft landscaping to concrete, both inside and outside buildings.
