Sediment Remediation & Dredging Support
Windward manages sediment assessment, remediation, and monitoring projects. Our years of experience supporting sediment dredging and remediation projects are critical to the successful completion of these projects. Windward’s sediment remediation experience includes aquatic site assessments under federal and state cleanup programs; remedial alternatives analysis, permitting, and regulatory support for sediment dredging projects; and habitat restoration design. These projects require an understanding of sediment chemistry, water quality, biological exposure pathways, ecology, and the regulatory framework under which the remediation program is being conducted.
Windward scientists and engineers have been instrumental in developing regional strategies to assess sediment quality (e.g., Washington State Sediment Management Standards) and evaluate dredged material (e.g., Puget Sound’s Dredged Disposal Analysis Program). We regularly participate in programs to refine these evaluation standards.
