In Situ Remediation

In situ remediation is the use of microorganism metabolism, called bioremediators, to remove pollutants from underneath the ground. Determination Drilling offers in situ bioremediation by use of drilling and treating the contaminated material on site. Methods for these injections can be done with the use of our augers, our probe rods, and even through monitoring wells.

When augering, the borehole is drilled to the targeted depth of contamination, the augers are retracted to the amount desired for injection (usually 5′ – 10′) and the packer system is lowered in our 3.25″ augers. With the use of our packer system we are able to push bioremediators through our augers in the specific zones allowing for an effective injection.

With the use of our direct push technology, injections can be made through a probing rod, once you have reached the contaminated zone. The slots in the rods allow the bioremediators to pass into the soil, injecting with minimum disturbance to the ground.

Injections can also be successfully completed through a finished monitoring well. Once a monitoring well is installed with the desired amount of screen, injections can be done through the top with a fitted cap.
