Priceless Art, Old Cowhides & Mud

Apr 13, 2016

Above: Former “Brownfields Site” – Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

About 20 years ago, we had a delicate job to do: Carry in our vibracoring equipment and sampling platform past centuries old Japanese statues and then collect sediment cores amongst priceless snow lanterns in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden.

Having been an ash dump throughout the 1800’s, this unsightly moonscape had been repurposed in 1914 into the oldest Japanese-style garden in the United States.  Unwittingly, the ash dump had become one of New York City’s earliest environmental success stories.

The job had one more special requirement: eighty years earlier cowhide had been used as the liner for the pond.  It was essential we did not core through this antique pond liner and possibly drain the pond.

We are happy to report the sampling job was completed without damaging any art treasures and/or puncturing the pond’s liner.  Whether in New York City or halfway around the world, many of our sediment vibracoring projects require us to come up with unique sampling solutions.

Aqua Survey was founded in 1975 specifically to collect water and sediment samples and over forty years later we still are.  Our staff collectively has hundreds of years’ experience in getting our clients the samples they need—safely, professionally, on time and on budget.
