INTERA Providing Environmental Consulting, Testing, and Operations and Maintenance for Remediation of the Jacksonville Shipyards
INTERA is providing risk assessment, permitting,
engineering design, and groundwater modeling services for the environmental remediation of the City of Jacksonville’s Shipyards site. Under contract to Mechling Engineering & Consulting, selected by the City in November 2014 to lead this high profile project, INTERA is playing a key role in the assessment of submerged land which includes the conceptual design of dredging to allow ship mooring, evaluation of dredged material management options for handling contaminants in the sediment, development of cost estimates, and federal and state dredge/fill permitting. The remediation efforts are preparing the site, located downtown near EverBank Field (home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars), for re-development that may include plans proposed by the Jaguars owner, Shad Khan, as detailed in the following link.
