Tetra Tech Wins Environmental Management Contract for Miami Harbor Expansion (USA)
Tetra Tech, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a $20 million contract, with option years for an additional $3.5 million, with the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, LLC to perform environmental management services and provide construction oversight as part of the Miami Harbor Construction Dredging Project.
Tetra Tech’s scientists will provide environmental management and quality control oversight for the transplantation of seagrasses, relocation of corals, and monitoring of existing seagrass beds, coral reefs and sediment during dredging activities. Tetra Tech’s engineers will also subcontract and manage the construction of new artificial reefs and seagrass beds created from the dredged material.
PortMiami is the first port in the southeastern United States to initiate dredging operations to expand its capacity to accommodate the larger shipping vessels anticipated from the expanded Panama Canal.
