The Geotechnical Engineering Section has drilling staffs based in Nashville and Knoxville. Drillers work on a variety of projects in all of Tennessee's 95 counties, working on both land and water. Two barges are maintained for drilling in lakes or streams with deep water. Wherever water is shallow, the crews work directly in the water.
