What does an environmental site investigation involve?
A site investigation typically involves drilling boreholes across the site and taking soil samples from various depths which are then sent to a laboratory for chemical analysis. We can employ a variety drilling methods depending on access restrictions, ground conditions at the site and your requirements. In addition to soil sampling we can, where necessary, undertake monitoring of ground gases and vapours and groundwater.
