Cascade Drilling was founded in 1991 as a highly regarded Northwestern U.S. regional drilling company operating across three states. Cascade developed a strong reputation for safety, service and reliability with a particular emphasis on traditional drilling technologies: auger, rotary and direct push. In 2013 the company made a significant investment in sonic drilling technology and expanded its geographic reach across the United States. From these humble roots the company has grown into a national, full service company offering innovation solutions for every step of your project from environmental and geotechnical drilling to advanced site characterization and both in situ and ex situ remediation applications. Our diverse portfolio of environmental, investigation and remediation services are evidence of our ability to complete even the most challenging projects on time and on budget.
Our vision is to integrate technology, safety, sustainability and human potential to tackle the challenging environmental and geotechnical issues facing our clients.
Cascade’s rapid growth in both service capabilities and geographic expanse led the company to rebrand the organization in 2016. Cascade had become more than an environmental drilling contractor. Today, as Cascade Environmental, we provide a full range of environmental investigation, drilling and remediation services and technologies including:

The Cascade Organization
Known in the marketplace simply as Cascade, our organization is comprised of two primary operation companies and a number of subsidiaries. Our project teams and business development specialists work closely together to ensure our clients have access to the full suite of services and industry leading experts under the Cascade umbrella.
Cascade Technical Services focuses on high resolution site characterization and subsurface investigation. With expertise from field technicians to PhDs, we partner with you to deliver the right technology for every job no matter how routine or complex.
Cascade Drilling provides a full range of environmental and geotechnical drilling services. Regardless of the lithology or location, Cascade Drilling has the right equipment, experience, and specialized expertise to do the job. WE offer sonic and conventional drilling technologies. Our fleet includes track and truck mounted equipment and limited access rigs for tight spaces, low overhead conditions, and over-water work allowing us to access almost any drill site.
Cascade Subsidiaries include TerraTherm, Aquifer Drilling & Testing, Panther Technologies and GeoSierra Environmental.
TerraTherm is a worldwide leader in the development and implementation of in situ and on‐site thermal remediation of organic contaminants. TerraTherm designs, builds and operates projects from concept to closure, using Thermal Conduction Heating (TCH), Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE), Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH), and combinations of the technologies above.
Aquifer Drilling & Testing (ADT) provides environmental and geotechnical drilling for a variety of applications in the greater New York City area. ADT’s experienced drilling crews operate a diverse drilling fleet including sonic, auger, rotary and specialty equipment.
Panther Technologies, Inc. provides remedial services including conventional and innovative soil and groundwater remediation, hazardous and non-hazardous waste management and disposal, industrial landfill capping and lagoon closures, and mechanical system installations
GeoSierra Environmental is best known for our Trenchless PRB Placement technology for installing permeable reactive barriers (PRBs). In addition to Trenchless PRBs, we are leveraging our technology and highly specialized groundwater expertise to tackle other difficult groundwater cleanup problems such as source remediation in fractured bedrock and remediation of stagnant plumes in fat clays.
