Construction Management and Water Quality Monitoring

Anchor QEA helped carry out construction management and monitoring for Honeywell at the Lake Linden Area A Time-Critical Removal Action (TCRA) in Michigan, part of a Superfund site in the Great Lakes faced with elevated concentrations of various metals.

Anchor QEA completed the design and performed construction management for this project, which consisted of sediment dredging and clean backfill placement. Additionally, restoration of the upland remediation support area consisted of removing the sediment processing pad, removing temporary access roads, and mulching the ground surface to restore the upland remediation support area to its original condition.

To address potential health and ecological risks attributable to sediment disturbance during construction, Anchor QEA’s drone technology was used in conjunction with turbidity measurements to consistently monitor and document water quality, allowing us to track turbidity curtain effectiveness throughout dredging during the project. The use of drone imagery allowed us to create fast, reproducible, and on-demand documentation of project conditions to effectively communicate with all parties involved.
