To serve large government initiatives, Anchor QEA offers a broad spectrum of expertise delivered through agile, interdisciplinary teams. We support the United States federal government and foreign governments, with an emphasis on exceptional performance and diligent compliance with all regulations and contract terms. We apply our expertise in environmental services, biological resources management, planning and compliance, and engineering design services, particularly in the areas of dredging, marine structure clean and contaminated sediment management, toxic and hazardous substances remediation, water resources engineering, navigation, and groundwater management. These technical services are complemented by our specialties in National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation, hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, coastal restoration, and ecosystem restoration.
Anchor QEA manages multiple contracts and projects for a variety of federal agencies across the United States, with particular emphasis on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Department of the Interior agencies, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Canadian government.

Anacapa Island Wharf Rehabilitation Title I, II, and III Services
The inadequate and deteriorated wharf on Anacapa Island in Channel Islands National Park led to an unfortunate incident that prompted the National Park Service (NPS) to accelerate replacement of the park’s dock. Anchor QEA managed the Title I, II, and III efforts that included designing and cost estimating of the replacement wharf.Learn More About This Project
Alcatraz Ferry Embarkation Impact Statement
The National Park Service (NPS) needed to improve and expand principal ferry service between the northern San Francisco waterfront and Alcatraz Island. NPS also wanted to establish a special ferry service that would connect the primary embarkation site to other Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) parklands.Learn More About This Project
Scorpion Pier Reconstruction
The National Park Service (NPS) replaced and relocated Scorpion Pier and its access road to improve park operations and visitor experience and provide safe access to Santa Cruz Island—the most visited island in Channel Islands National Park.
The project addressed the deficiencies with the pier and road by creating a new pier and access road approach in a better location. In addition, the project design included features to address flooding and future projected changes in sea level without the need for a full replacement, and it accommodated construction on an island and in a volcanic rock environment.Learn More About This Project
Grasse River Sediment Remediation and Habitat Reconstruction
Historical industrial activities along the Grasse River in upstate New York released polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) that accumulated in more than 7 miles of the river’s sediments. These compounds can bioaccumulate up the food chain, which led to a fish advisory put in place for the Lower Grasse River due to elevated levels of PCBs in fish. Anchor QEA’ supported the successful completion of a 3-year-long remedial construction phase, which included dredging, capping, and habitat reconstruction.Learn More About This Project
