Projects: Hurricane Sandy Restoration

Working with a contractor who was recently awarded over a $49M contract for post Hurricane Sandy restoration of the Battery Park Tunnel, American Analytical will be collecting paint chip samples from within the damaged vault areas inside the tubes, and analyzing them for lead content.  The tunnel, which links Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, sees around 44,000 vehicles on a daily basis.  The permit for lane closures was obtained for the wee hours of 11 PM to 3 AM.  The view from Manhattan, overlooking  the Statue of Liberty, was nonetheless just as spectacular after midnight.
