ECT provided oversight and managed construction activities, including removing Alcott Street dam, restoring Portage Creek, and documenting the project’s progression. The project is expected to restore natural resources and improve the habitat along a portion of Portage Creek and allow fish to swim through the former dam area.
ECT’s Michael T. Hebert, CPG, CHMM, P.G., CUSTP, served as project manager. He led ECT’s multidisciplinary team, including Jim Kralik, Paul Meyer, CPG, P.G., CUSTP, and Craig Simon from ECT’s Site Assessment & Remediation (SAR) service line, and Tonya Hunter, LLA, CA, from ECT’s Natural Resources service line.
“The Alcott Dam Removal and Portage Creek Restoration project consisted of removing a dam structure, which was under structural failure, relocating Portage Creek, and restoring more than a third of mile of Portage Creek. The entire project was situated within a designated Superfund Area,” said Hebert.
