A ground treatment process performed to accomplish one of two things, either to reduce the flow of water or to improve the ground characteristics by drilling boreholes into the foundation and injecting materials under pressure into the subsurface foundation.
Each hole on a grouting project is an extension of the earlier exploration holes and the data gathered are utilized to increase the understanding of subsurface conditions. The injected materials used in grouting range from cementitious grout (particulate) materials to a variety of chemical grouts.
