Test Pit Investigation

Test pits are a common way to investigate the subsurface soils and collect soil samples if needed. This is done for purposes of delineating contamination in order to determine the location and size of a plume.Test pits are often requested over soil borings in landscapes where terrain is more extreme and to visibly see at what depth groundwater is at.

ENRC has the necessary equipment and experience in safety performing test pits with accuracy. If test pits aren’t what you are looking for and you would need something with less ground disturbance, we can also perform soil borings up to 100 feet.
