Abstract : In the United States there are numerous locations where site investigations are being conducted to assess the geological, hydrogeological, and possible subsurface contamination conditions. During the course of those site investigations, numerous boreholes and penetrometer holes are being placed in the ground subsurface. Many of these drilled or pushed holes penetrate the groundwater saturated zone and provide potential conduits for the transfer of contaminants into the local groundwater. The open boreholes or penetrometer holes must be properly sealed prior to the completion of the site investigation to prevent any potential cross layer contaminant transfer through the subsurface.
