Permitting, Design, Constructability Analysis Consulting
Consulting and Engineering services for the Dredging and Restoration of Hendrix Canal in joint venture with O’Brien & Gere Engineers, to provide sampling and analysis, surveys, dredge engineering, and environmental consulting services to clean up CSO sediment contamination. The project is being performed under the direction and guidance of the New York City DEP as the lead agency for the expeditious completion of the project. The project included extensive field sampling performed by CLE as well as laboratory programs for chemical analysis, marine biological resources (shellfish, benthic habitat, wildlife, aquaculture, lobster, finfish), water circulation, channel and sediment characteristics. Because of difficult access to the site, and the proximity to the Jamaica Bay Refuge, CLE’s tasks included developing project means and methods that would have the least impact on the bay while keeping the project within budget guidelines and maximizing beneficial reuse of dredged materials.
