Brennan, working under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Chicago District, executed environmental dredging, sampling, capping, and habitat restoration to remediate an Area of Concern near East Chicago, IN. While complex, the objectives were clear: remediate sediment, mitigate oil sheen, and improve the ecological habitat. Successes and lessons learned during this project will influence operations and remediation efforts for the rest of Lake George Canal.
Environmental Remediation and Restoration at Lake George Canal
Funding for this project was provided by the US EPA through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
Rarely do we work on an environmental remediation project without significant restoration work. Brennan’s ability to work on the land, in the water, and in wetland areas allows us to deliver a complete restoration without the need for temporary roads or deep access dredging. We are dedicated to the preservation and rehabilitation of environmentally sensitive wetlands, lakes, and rivers. From remote locations to dense urban areas, we have the ability to complete a full wildlife habitat restoration.
