soil boring tests

soil boring tests

Tests performed by a geotechnical engineer by drilling holes into the soil in order to determine some or all of the following:(1) ability of the soil to support structures on the surface with or without additional assistance from footings, piers, and other aids; (2) permeability of the soil to determine whether it will percolate sufficiently for an on-site septic system; (3) discover and monitor leakage from underground storage tanks or the presence of other contaminants.
