10,000 gallon steel tank being loaded for hauling to disposal contractor.  Dry ice poured inside the tank eliminates the risk of explosion by displacing oxygen with CO2.  The dry ice also freezes exterior moisture into white ice crystals visible in the photo.

Eight-inch diameter hollow-stem auger used to install 2" diameter monitoring well.  Wells can be installed through frozen ground and concrete. The wells are monitored for groundwater quality and flow direction.

-

Completed above-grade monitoring well (same well being installed in previoius photo).  The yellow six-inch diameter steel casing proctects the two-inch diameter PVC well inside.


-

Completed at-grade monitoring well;   Installed as required with a 4' x 4' concrete pad and steel cover to protect the 2" diam. well

-

 Geoprobe equipment uses ONE INCH diameter rods which are pushed into the ground.  It then retrieves soil and/or groundwater samples from desired depths.  This equipment is much quicker and less invasive than hollow-stem augers.

-

Geoprobe equipment can also collect soil gas samples.  Vapors can travel through soil 100 feet.
