The processes responsible for the distribution and transport of sediments in coastal regions are dependent on the hydrogeologic and structural setting of the area as well as the fluvial mechanisms present. Chester Engineers’ staff of geologists and hydrogeologists has extensive experience working in structurally diverse geologic settings and in interpreting site specific hydrogeologic processes. Chester’s diverse expertise provides the ability to conduct site characterizations of potential restoration projects and address the remedial affects of redistributing dredged sediments.
Chester recognizes the importance of defining clear restoration goals and using a research-based approach to attain these goals. Our best practices approach integrates restoration of natural processing to design self-sustaining projects. We believe this approach engages and educates the local communities and addresses the long-term management needs of our clients.
