Drilling & Borings

East Coast Geoservices, LLC (ECG) our full service environmental and geotechnical company, specializing in geological and environmental sampling, and groundwater monitoring well installations and sampling.  ECG currently has three (3) Power Probe sampling drill rigs that have both direct push and auger capabilities.  The 9100 unit, mounted on a Bobcat MT-52, is a small versatile unit that is utilized to collect soil and groundwater samples in restrictive space environments.  This unit can be taken into wooded areas without having to clear a path and inside buildings through 36 inch wide doorways.  The 9580-D & 9600 units, situated on Ford F-550 flatbed trucks, are heavy-duty machines which can go deeper than the 9100 and utilize larger augers allowing the installation of larger groundwater wells at deeper depths.  Both of these units also have Auto Drop Hammers which are utilized to obtain “blow counts” needed for geotechnical information.

ECG has a field screening monitor, a Rae Systems MiniRae 2000 Portable VOC Monitor Photo Ionization Detector (PID), a Biosystems MultiVision four gas meter, a Horiba U-22XD Multi-Parameter water quality monitoring system, a peristaltic pump and two (2) submersible groundwater sampling pumps.  Also available is a Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI) UtilityScan DF Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) unit which is utilized to locate underground structures and perform subsurface geophysical surveys.  Specifically, the GPR unit is utilized to located subsurface sanitary systems structures (i.e. cesspools, septic tanks, grease traps, etc.), associated piping and underground storage tanks.  The GPR unit can locate most underground utilities; however, ECG is not a private mark-out firm.  A pipe camera with a color monitor, 200 foot long cable, a locating head and/or flushable locating device are utilized to locate subsurface sanitary systems and stormwater leaching pools.  We also have an ISCO automated Influent/Effluent Sampler which can be programmed to collect one large composite sample or 24 individual water samples over a 24 hour period.
