Test pits are part of a group of geotechnical tests to help understand the characteristics of sub surface soil and rock matter.
Test pitting is an effective method of obtaining valuable data on the condition of the sub surface soil and rock conditions in a particular area. Test pitting allows for the different types of soil and rock types to be examined, the soils to be sampled (and analyzed) and allow for a preliminary assessment of a particular project or survey. An example of a test project is the assessment of the possible effects of leaching on a communities groundwater supply. Other examples include:
- archaeological surveys
- septic system leach fields
- construction sites
- landfill leaching
