Soil Sampling Work Behind #1 Green
Cascade Drilling is doing some deep drilling for core samples behind #1 Green. This is research for part of the University's Ground Source Heat Exchange (GSHE) Project. The project is part of the larger power plant project. The GSHE project involves using ground water to exchange heat, potentially saving energy on a campus-wide level.
Samples are being taken for historical nitrate levels in the soil and to determine if they will have any effect on ground water.
The work will take place in two sites along Electioneer Rd., this one, and one site near the tennis courts. The work is slated to be complete by this Friday 4/19.
