Lead Smelting Facility

biological survey and assessment of lead smelting facility

Project Details

Great Ecology joined the WSP Group to implement field studies on a lead smelting facility in upstate New York. The goal was to maintain compliance with a Step 2c Fish and Wildlife Impact Analysis (FWIA) as directed by the NYSDEC.

Great Ecology staff collected tissue sample from fish, benthic invertebrates, and small mammals inhabiting the surrounding wetland areas for lead testing. Great Ecology also conducted a biological impairment assessment of the property, which included a comprehensive benthic invertebrate survey of the property’s streams and collection of sediments for analysis.
