Parratt-Wolff effectively reduced the duration of site remediation for their clients when they introduced MiHpt into their service offerings three years ago.

“With the Direct Image® tools, we can paint a high resolution subsurface picture during the initial site investigation or fill in data gaps that traditional sampling methods have left behind,” said Danylo Kulczycky, Project Manager and DI Team Leader at Parratt-Wolff Inc., based in Syracuse, New York.  “These tools provide the operator and client with real time logging, which allows for more efficient decision-making resulting in one mobilization for site investigation rather than multiple.”

The MiHpt, which combines the Membrane Interface Probe (MIP) and Hydraulic Profiling Tool (HPT), is ideal for determining contaminant mobility and migration pathways – and it’s been a game-changer for Parratt-Wolff and their clients.

“The MiHpt tool has been our workhorse,” Kulczycky said. “The tills and mixed matrix soils found in the northeast require that the HPT tool is used in combination with the Electrical Conductivity (EC) for soil characterization. We have used the HPT aspect of the probe for resource well siting and the HPT in combination with the thermocouple of the MIP probe to investigate areas of lake water intrusion.”

Since 1969, Parratt-Wolff has been part of more than 13,000 site investigations.  Next year, the team will celebrate its 50th anniversary.  The company has grown from one drill rig servicing the geotechnical needs of Central New York to three offices and more than 35 drill rigs servicing the environmental and geotechnical drilling needs of the entire East Coast. 

“Although we are a drilling contractor by definition, we pride ourselves on serving as drilling consultants to our clients,” Kulczycky said.  “The addition of DI equipment and trained operators to our service offerings furthers our goal as a company of providing technical expertise to our clients.”
