Soil Surveys

Drilling over water

Often geotechnical investigations are required to be undertaken in areas of standing water. Soil Surveys has many years of experience in undertaking these projects and is well placed to provide solutions for your investigation needs.

Soil Surveys has a wide range of experience in using our drilling rigs over water. Two of our rigs can be removed from their trucks and used on barges, ideal for use in waterways where access for a smaller barge may only be possible.
For larger waterways where water depth or wave action may have a more significant impact on the drilling, the use of larger barges where the rigs do not need to be dismounted, are also an option that we have adopted in the past.  

Soil Surveys also have access to smaller craft that can be utilized for investigations on even the tightest of water sites.
