Indiana Harbor and Canal

Strategic sediment management to restore a Great Lakes waterway

The removal of nearly 1 million cubic yards of sediment from the Indiana Harbor and Canal is helping to restore the waterway to navigable depths and improve water quality in southern Lake Michigan.

Progress toward restoring value of Fountain Lake

Removal of more than 1 million cubic yards of sediment will reduce the lake’s internal phosphorus load and increase the water depth – ultimately maximizing water clarity and water quality throughout the watershed

In situ technology results in significant time savings

Ramboll, in partnership with its client and regulatory officials, developed a remedial strategy for a site in Teterboro, New Jersey, USA using in situ thermal remediation for the areas of greatest contamination, combined with in situ chemical oxidation for the less contaminated zones, and a slurry wall to surround 3.2 acres of the parcel.
