Why would you inject tape into the ground?

What in the world is this weird surveying (?) procedure all about?

This was taking place on a small patch of a large lot
that's been undeveloped for some time, near Queen and the Don River, in Toronto.
The photos are described in flickr, but basically, a small work crew was using something that looked like a modified pile driver to inject some sort of tape into the ground at closely spaced intervals. It looked like it was going quite deep -- maybe 10 or 15 meters down.
It was hard to tell, but it looked like the tape might have actually been a collapsed tube of some sort.
What the wtf's is the whole thing about?
