Hudson River Estuary Barrier Program

August 9, 2017

Chazen performed evaluations of four existing culverts and four existing dams located within the Hudson River Estuary. On-site inspections and evaluations of culvert and dam structures included assessments of the structural condition as well as site screening for ecological, aquatic and cultural resources. Chazen then prepared preliminary designs that provided for the replacement of the culverts or removal of the dams in order to facilitate connectivity of aquatic natural resources and species. As part of the study and design, Chazen prepared preliminary costing information as well as identified permitting requirements and other supporting documentation, included geotechnical studies.
