WATER BOREHOLE DRILLING
With over 30 years of water borehole drilling statistics, RPM has accumulated a wealth of information about ground formations, water quality, water quantity and depth of shifting in each specific area. With our special equipment, any formation for example alluvium (sand, round stones and gravel) can be drilled with ease.
WATER BOREHOLE MONITORING
RPM has been involved for many years in the sinking of monitoring boreholes. In numerous instances we assist with the design of the boreholes. It is critical that the construction of these boreholes is meticulously planned. If water is found, we look at/consider a monitoring borehole (level). That is where water is found above solid rock in the alluvial layer, and monitored.
Secondly, deeper holes are sunk to monitor water in the solid rock. Once again, it is vital that this water in the rock does not mix with the alluvial water. The purpose of these holes, is to check for pollution and also to determine the availability of ground water in the long term
We specialise in the collecting of ground samples for agriculture use, as well as use by Civil Engineering Companies. We are also available for piling jobs to support trees and other structures.
