Soil & Sediment Sampling

EST is routinely contracted to collect soil samples from a variety of public and private sites throughout the region. EST’s sampling services include everything from surficial samples (0-6 inches) to continuous samples collected via Geoprobe TM or conventional drilling methods. We will prepare a sampling plan, set up a sampling grid, perform headspace screening and collect samples in accordance with approved methods.

EST also has equipment and trained personnel to collect representative samples from rivers, streams, ponds, and lagoons. While sampling plans may allow for the collection of surface water and sediment samples from a stream bank or other accessible locations, EST can also safely access remote areas by utilizing gas and electric powered pontoon boats, Zodiac boats and other vessels when required. Our extensive inventory of sampling equipment used to collect representative sediments or water samples also includes dredge samplers, coring devices, and environmental sampling pumps.

For over twenty years, EST has assisted me with various wastewater and stormwater compliance projects. As an extremely busy project manager, I have high standards and expectations for anyone I’m working with, especially when I’m entrusting them with clients I’m responsible for managing. With EST however, I never have to worry as they are always professional, quick to respond, and they take my client’s compliance needs very seriously. I highly recommend their services.

One of our most important clients needed wastewater sampling performed and each location had its own unique challenges. We knew EST was resourceful, flexible, had a deep bench, and a can-do attitude so we thought of them to help. The entire EST team made this project a great success for us and our client. We would not hesitate to recommend EST for these and other services as we, and our clients, have had very positive experiences working with them.
