Engineering Evaluation and Cost Analysis at a Former Chemical Manufacturing Facility

Integral Consulting developed a 3-dimensional (3-D) animation to support a sediment engineering evaluation and cost analysis at a former chemical manufacturing facility.

  • More than 575 sediment chemistry samples, taken at locations shown as sediment cores in this animation, are the basis for the volumetric model of sediment concentrations in the river.
  • A 3-D geostatistical technique was used to calculate surface and subsurface chemistry concentrations.
  • The 3-D animation provides the ability to visualize the spatial distribution of the sediment chemical concentrations and the ability to estimate the mass and volume of contaminated sediment.
  • The animation served as a planning and collaboration tool for building consensus with the regulatory agencies and analyzing the costs and benefits of several remedial option scenarios.
