Sediment Evaluation, Mississippi Coastal Improvement Program (MsCIP), Hancock County, Mississippi

This project was conducted under the Mississippi Coastal Improvement Program (MsCIP) and included two sites within the Hancock County Streams project:   Hancock County Marina and Cowan Bayou.  These areas were heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina, which had adverse effects on some of the drainage­ways due to the deposition of material from the storm surge and subsequent flooding.  Restoration activities for these sites consisted of clearing clogged marina channels and drainageways to restore usage and adequate storm drainage.   Potential contaminants resulting from deposition of chemicals or petroleum products from residences, businesses, and commercial operations may exist at the sites for this project.  The goal of this project was to test these areas for contaminants prior to excavation and disposal of the dredged material. 

ANAMAR was contracted by USACE to perform sampling activities in the project area.  The objective of this study was to evaluate the physical and chemical characteristics of sediment collected from the Hancock County Marina and sediment, elutriate, and water samples from Cowan Bayou.  ANAMAR coordinated and directed operations for this project, performed sample collection, subcontracted laboratory analyses, and prepared final report deliverables.  ANAMAR reviewed all data and produced a report summarizing the results of the physical and chemical analysis of sediment samples collected from the project area.
