Jacobs Field Wins New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site Contract (USA)

An interim remedial action contract was awarded recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, for work on the New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site in New Bedford, Mass.

Work will be accomplished by Jacobs Field Services North America, Inc., of Oak Ridge, Tenn. The contract was awarded on Feb. 14, 2014.

The work consists of providing support to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to clean-up PCB- contaminated sediments from the New Bedford Harbor in New Bedford, Mass. The harbor was contaminated from the 1940s through the 1970s by two electrical capacitor manufacturing plants that discharged PCB waste.

The sole source indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract is valued at $45 million and is meant to provide one additional dredging season at the New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site. This award will act as a bridge contract while a new Site Specific Remedial Action Contract (RAC) is put in place for the New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site.

The intent of this bridge contract is to continue dredging while a new contract vehicle is put in place and allow overlap between the incumbent (Jacobs Field Services North America, Inc.) and the new RAC contractor.

The work requirements under this contract will be managed by the Corps under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.
