Sediment Management

Innovative and effective solutions for contaminated sediment sites that provide actionable information throughout the remedial process.

Aquatic settings present a unique set of challenges when addressing and overcoming sediment issues. Our goal is to provide strategic planning and data-driven approaches to inform risk-based decisions for impacted aquatic settings. To that extent, timely, cost-effective, and environmentally sound investigations are the central goal of GSI’s contaminated sediment remediation projects. By integrating detailed site knowledge with risk assessment principles, we ensure that data collection and analysis stays on track to achieve overall remedial action objectives.

In addition to our core services, we specialize in strategically navigating key emerging issues in aquatic settings and sediment management:

FEATURED PROJECTS

Remedial Investigation and Planning Support for in a Marine Waterway and Associated Marsh. Confidential facility, New Jersey

Performed a meta-synthesis of environmental monitoring data collected from studies across neighboring sites and from the NOAA Diver database. Provided analysis of potential impacts for remedial planning and review of related site documents. In addition, GSI provided litigation support conducting fingerprinting and unmixing analyses in sediment and soil to characterize potential source profiles thereby differentiating mercury on- and off-site stemming from two different industrial processes.
