Projects: Sediment and Dredge Analysis

American Analytical provided their laboratory services to a national environmental consulting firm working at several marine terminals along the Delaware River.

The contractor collected multiple sediment sample borings from within each of the terminals waters.

The purpose of the investigation was to evaluate and continually improve dredging and dredged material management activities such that navigational¬† –¬† commercial and recreational – ¬†needs are met while meeting environmental protection, restoration and enhancement goals.

American Analytical had been retained to analyze the sediment samples on an expedited schedule for a wide array of constituents, including geotechnical, organic, inorganic and wet chemistry parameters.
