Tetra Tech, Inc. has won a $35 million general environmental services contract that includes technical support services related to the assessment and remediation of contaminated sediments in the tidal portion of the Anacostia River, a heavily urbanized river flowing through the Nation’s Capital.
Restoration activities will be implemented at sites throughout the watershed as part of large-scale efforts initiated by the District of Columbia Government to revitalize the river and the surrounding communities.
Under the Cleaner Anacostia River initiative, Tetra Tech will further define areas of sediment contamination in the Anacostia River.
Tetra Tech scientists will sample surface water, river sediment, groundwater seepage, and fish for a wide variety of chemicals to provide the first comprehensive assessment of the nature and extent of pollution in the river. The company will then develop and evaluate potential remedial actions to reduce risks to human health and the environment.
