AWK maintains a drilling division that consists of 8 drill rigs for environmental and geotechnical subsurface exploration.

AWK has completed over 1,000 environmental/geotechnical/ remediation projects since the company was established in 1983. Over 500 of these projects involved geotechnical and environmental drilling. Most of the projects involved a government agency (federal, state, county, or city) and the tasks were completed to exacting federal (USEPA, USACE, OSHA) or state standards, policies, and procedures. Some of these projects involved site investigations of landfills, hazardous waste sites, and USTs, while others involved building additions, highways and bridges, tunnel repair, and locks and dam rehabilitation.
