Sediment Transport Study
In support of a remedial investigation/feasibility study, Anchor QEA conducted a modeling study that evaluated sediment transport processes in a salt-wedge estuary contaminated with various chemicals, including PCBs.
Our study focused on bed stability in the estuary during high-flow events and the natural attenuation rate of surface-layer sediment throughout multi-year periods. The study provided important insights about sediment transport processes in the waterway and information to support feasibility study analyses. It also informed remedial decision-making.
