Key Conclusions: ERAS has acquired drilling and sampling equipment that enables Phase 2 vapor and shallow soil sampling. These new capabilities enable us to do faster, less expensive sampling projects saving our clients time and money.

ERAS now has powered drilling and sampling equipment that enables us to collect soil gas (aka soil vapor) samples and shallow soil samples for laboratory analysis. The equipment includes drilling equipment and drilling rods that allow for driving of drill rods to depths of up to 10 feet for sampling depending on subsurface conditions.

The equipment vastly improves the capabilities to sample beneath concrete and also penetrate base rock and hard soils that were previously difficult to impossible to sample using older hand sampling equipment. The equipment allows many sites to be investigated without subcontracting a drilling contractor resulting in significant savings in time and money.
