Abstract: Altech Environmental Services, Inc. (Altech) was retained as an A/E Contractor by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District to oversee and provide sampling services at designated sampling stations at Algoma Harbor, Wisconsin. The purpose of the project is to characterize sediment material in the Federal Navigation channel at Algoma Harbor, Wisconsin for the purpose of estimating environmental impacts of disposal of the dredged material. The scope of work entailed collection of sediment and water samples from five (5) locations (designated AG0001 through AG0005). Sediment sampling procedures are further discussed under the "Sample Collection" heading. Sampling services were performed on June7, 2000 from Coleman Engineering Company's (Coleman) 21-foot Monarch tri-hull workboat. The crew consisted of Altech's Mark Cruickshank , project manager and geologist and Coleman's Scott Strigel and Rick Scott. Altech provided project supervision, including direction of all sampling activities, sample handling, descriptive work, field documentation, photography, sediment logging and health and safety issues. Coleman's Rick Scott handled the winch, Ponar sampler and gravity core. Scott Strigel was responsible for the boats operation and navigational systems. He was also responsible for maneuvering the vessel to a designated geographic coordinate or sampling station and maintaining its position.
