Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. was contracted by US Steel Corporation during 2005 through 2008 to perform single beam hydrographic surveys of the Calumet River at the US Steel facility in Gary Indiana. Cross-sections were taken at 50 foot intervals and overlayed on USS contract plan templates to assure compliance with EPA and other agency agreements regarding the removal of contaminated sediments to native soil, computed quantities and provided expert services during negotiations of excavated quantity resolutions. Surveying services were performed under the direct supervision of Arc’s PLS and ACSM Certified Hydrographer.
