Sediment rehabilitation and demolition of Miguasha wharf, Quebec

The project components include the demolition of the wharf, the removal of the riprap located at the end of the wharf as well as the steel sheet piles, the dolfins, the wooden casings and the concrete walls. Depending on the results of the sediment environmental characterization and the requirements related to their environmental quality, sediment rehabilitation could be carried out by excavation. The goal is to remove existing structures and remove potential contamination to meet environmental requirements.
