ANAMAR Awarded Contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District has awarded ANAMAR a contract to perform environmental services for the collection and analysis of water and sediment samples.  The sampling will be performed at the federally maintained Corpus Christi Ship Channel and the offshore ocean dredged material disposal site (ODMDS).

The purpose of the testing is to evaluate shoal material prior to maintenance of the channel to determine whether unacceptable impacts would result from dredging operations.  The Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act of 1972 (MPRSA) prohibits placement of material into the ocean that would unreasonably degrade or endanger human health or the marine environment.

USACE-Galveston District employs an environmental management framework to provide structure and accountability within its business processes to help enhance and expand the positive impacts of its mission while reducing, mitigating, or eliminating potential negative impacts.

Work is expected to begin in May 2014.
