Hudson River Remediation

Location: Ft. Edward, New York

Summary: Remediation program on a 40-mile stretch of the Hudson River from Ft. Edward to Troy, New York.

Sediment sample collection utilizing Vibracore at approximately 3,000 sample locations within the Hudson River. Traditional drilling techniques included hollow stem augers and wet rotary methods were utilized on both land and water to collect additional information.

Services Provided:

  • Sediment sampling
  • Monitoring well installation
  • Push cores
  • Geotechnical borings for dredging feasibility
  • Vane shear testing and undisturbed samples collection

Construction and environmental remediation within river, lake, estuary, and coastal environments present unique challenges. With a history of successful partnerships in several high-profile sediment sampling and data collection projects, ATL has earned the reputation as a leader in the field of water-based investigation services.

ATL provides water-based investigation services throughout the Northeast and Upper Mid-West, with capabilities in both fresh and salt water environments. With a fleet of customized sectional barge units, multiple support vessels, and specialized ancillary equipment, ATL is able to configure sampling platforms of various sizes to meet project specific requirements.

Experienced in various modern sampling techniques, ATL’s water-based staff is proficient in collecting discrete samples and managing large volumes of data. Our sampling results have proven reliable for use in multiple applications.
