TRAFALGAR owns drill rigs that vary in size and capabilities that allow us to meet the demands of any project. TTAFALGAR has drilled thousands of boreholes and installed countless monitoring wells ranging in depth from 5 feet to over 350 feet across varying ground conditions and locations. Whether the area you have to assess is outdoors in a paved parking lot, rough terrain, landscaped area, or indoors in a basement with limited access and clearance, TRAFALGAR has the equipment required to complete any project efficiently!

Chemical Injection

TRAFALGAR employs several remedial methods and chemical injection for contaminated soil and groundwater is one such method whereby a powerful reagent is introduced directly into the ground to break down the harmful contaminants.  The primary delivery mechanism for this type of remedial method is through perforated, hollow metal rods hammered into the ground by direct push drilling methods or by injection of the reagent into wells installed using hollow stem auger drilling. This method can be particularly useful when excavation of contamination is not an option.  Chemical injection is typically less costly than traditional remedial methods such as excavation and disposal; however, it requires more time as well as an experienced contractor.  Tri-Phase has both the theoretical and practical knowledge to tackle your contamination problem in a safe and effective manner.
