Machines used to perform testing are called drilling rigs. They consist of a truck with a large auger attached to the end, similar in technology to a large drill bit. Six to ten drill rigs will be visible on the street per day. This allows work to be completed faster.
Each rig is in place for three to five days at a location. Vehicles performing work off of Eglinton Avenue will stay parked overnight. Due to utility locations, samples will be taken in the middle of the road. In these areas, work may take longer as the crew cannot work during rush hour.
Efforts will be made to expedite the work as much as possible, while avoiding disruption to rush hour traffic.
