What is Environmental Drilling?

Environmental drilling is a way to investigate and delineate subsurface conditions and monitor them over time. The data collected may be used to identify areas of soil or groundwater contamination, log water table depths, or monitor and confirm the efficacy of remediation efforts.

It’s important to choose the right drilling technology and sampling techniques based on the expected geologic conditions.

Environmental Drilling Services

We have extensive experience in well installation, development, rehabilitation, abandonment, and groundwater monitoring installations. With our diverse drilling fleet and experienced crews, even the most difficult conditions can be overcome.

Cascade also offers conventional and sonic drilling technologies. Our fleet includes track and truck mounted equipment and limited access rigs for tight spaces, low overhead conditions, and over-water work allowing us to access almost any drill site.

Environmental Sampling

Get results you can trust. Our experts understand the importance of accurate samples regardless of geologic conditions. Whether it’s discrete or representative sampling you’re after, Cascade has the tools and technologies to get it. Soil, rock and even the most difficult ground conditions are no match for our experienced crews.

Cascade offers sonic and conventional drilling technologies in a variety of sampling applications:

  • Soil
  • Ground water
  • Soil gas
  • Vertical aquifer profiling
  • Bedrock coring
  • Packer testing

Well Services

Cascade specializes in the installation and development of monitoring, pumping, injection or extraction wells, soil and groundwater sampling equipment and the installation of remediation systems.

Cascade has decades of experience with sampling and well services: 

  • Well installation
  • Well development
