We have installed numerous monitoring wells, piezometers, inclinometers, recovery and soil vapor extraction wells and geothermal holes. Our field testing capabilities include slug tests, aquifer pumping tests and well development.

Drilling methonds include:
Auger (2.25" to 12.25" ID hollow-stem & solid-stem augers)  -  H.S. Augering  -  Air rotary  -  Mud rotary  - Rock Coring (HQ, Wireline)  -  Direct Push (Geoprobe®)

Geoprobe 66

The Geoprobe 66 is a compact rig that was designed to meet the expanding needs of probing/direct push sampling technology in the environmental market. The Geoprobe 66 uses pressure sensitive hydraulics to provide accurate control of the feed system and a hydraulic percussive hammer for driving probe rods and sampling tools.This system yields fast, consistent probing rates without over stressing the tools. This rig is ideal for environmental site assessment work including taking soil, water or vapor samples and installing microwells or piezometers.

Pearson Drilling Company uses the CME-750X a ATV carrier or Acker Renegade on tracks. These rigs have a very low center of gravity which provides the stability needed in off-road conditions, (both pictured below) to access remote and hard-to-reach location sites. Pearson also has a truck mounted CME-75HT and Acker Renegade for road or easy access sites. With 30,000 pounds (13,608 kg) of retract force and up to 13,105 foot pounds (17,768 Nm) of rotary torque, the CME-750X is capable of drilling holes up to 15 inches (38 cm) in diameter using hollow stem augers.

Our auger drills are equipped with split spoon samplers, safety hammers, teflon bailers and other necessary tools for soil or water sampling and monitor well installation. All of the CME auger rigs have quick disconnect derricks for work inside structures. All auger drills are equipped with automatic hammers for driving split spoon samplers. Pearson has available a Hydro-Punch sampler and a 2" submersible pump equipped with 300 feet of discharge tubing. The CME-750x drilling rig is very fast. Retract rates of up to 90 feet (27 m) per minute mean quick cycle times when adding augers or tripping out of the hole. The dependable mechanical rotary drive is available with up to 13,000 foot pounds (17,628 Nm) of torque for auger drilling holes up to 16 inches (41 cm) in diameter.
