Environmental Soil Sampling
Environmental investigations frequently call for soil and groundwater data at locations where conventional drilling equipment can't access. Rocky Mountain Soil Sampling has developed effective methods to collect soil samples, install monitoring wells and install vapour sampling wells where other drilling companies wouldn't think of going.

Want to drill inside a store at night, but allow them to keep operating during the day? With our electric powered drills, we can get in do the job and get out, with no fumes, no hydraulic hoses or hydraulic liquid spills to worry about and minimal impact to the stock in the store.

Want to install wells in between houses? With our Pionjar drills or, if hollow stem drilling is required, our Big Beaver Auger Drill with remote power pack, we can get into spaces as narrow as 26".

Want to collect sediment samples in the middle of a bay? Our light weight equipment means that we can advance boreholes in water as deep as 20', drilling from light weight rafts that are easily towed and moored using small tender boats.

Working in the environmental field, it's more than equipment though. At Rocky Mountain Soil Sampling, our crews are always aware of the impact that our work has on your reputation as an environmental professional.

Need to carry out confidential work, with a minimum of fanfare? We can provide unmarked vehicles if necessary.

Need to work with difficult tenants or in an adversarial situation? Our equipment can almost always find a spot that will be 'out of the way' and our crews will make every effort to leave the site cleaner than it was at the start. We're polite and always courteous. It's not company policy, it's just the way we are.

Want proof? Rocky Mountain Soil Sampling would be pleased to let you look at our portfolio of satisfied customers. We've got the pictures, the references, the client list. We're not promising the moon here. We will be straight up about what we can and cannot do. But where portable drilling is called for, Rocky Mountain Soil Sampling proudly presents ourselves as one of the best.

Without a doubt, there is not a neater alternative for environmental drilling around.
