Subsurface investigations are conducted for a variety of purposes including site assessments, groundwater supply exploration, aquifer protection protection planning, and site remediation. Methods used include test drilling, geoprobing and hydroprobing, and exploration geophysics.
Investigations conducted as a part of environmental or remedial projects generally
involve a delineation of the extent of soil and/or groundwater contamination. Monitoring
wells (or micro wells) are usually installed to facilitate measurement of water-level,
gauging for groundwater supply exploration involves characterization of an aquifer relative to
groundwater storage and transmission, water quality, and long-term safe yield.
Investigative techniques involve test drilling and installation of wells or
exploration geophysics, water quality analyses, and test pumping.
