Port of Astoria Sediment Characterization and Permitting

(Astoria, OR)  Landau Associates assisted the Port of Astoria with sediment characterization and permitting for dredging operations at their Central Waterfront District in Astoria, Oregon. Assistance included the preparation of a Sediment Characterization Report (SCR) for the Port documenting the Port’s sediment sampling activities and results. Since the SCR submittal, Landau Associates staff has acted as a liaison between the Port and regulatory authorities, and has prepared several follow-up documents and conducted additional sampling events to facilitate approval of dredging activities. Permitting assistance has included support in preparing a Joint Permit Application (JPA) for expedited review to conduct emergency dredging at the Port.
