Howland Hook Marine Terminal Mitigation Planning

Staten Island, NY

Global Container Terminals New York (GCT), formerly New York Container Terminal, engaged Great Ecology to develop mitigation strategies to offset wetland impacts incurred during the GCT’s Howland Hook Marine Terminal expansion in the Arthur Kill tidal straight. Great Ecology conducted extensive impact assessments, site investigations, and mapping to identify and evaluate over 12 potential mitigation locations in the region, including the adjacent Arlington Marsh. Great Ecology also developed habitat restoration designs for specific sites and performed cost-benefit analyses for feasible mitigation projects in and around Staten Island. Our team led regulatory and stakeholder coordination with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, New York City Economic Development Corporation, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation along with regional planners and local citizens’ groups.
