USACE Awards Unity Island Contract

The USACE, Buffalo District, awarded a $1.39 million contract last week to Tidewater Inc, in support of the Unity Island Aquatic and Riparian Invasive Species Management and Habitat Restoration Project for the removal of aquatic invasive species (AIS) from Unity Island, Buffalo, NY.

As part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), the Unity Island project will be a demonstration project conducted in coordination with the city of Buffalo and the USACE Engineer Research and Development Center.

Methods used to control AIS will be monitored for a period of three years, before potentially being employed throughout the Great Lakes in coastal wetland environments similar to Unity Island.

With this federal investment, we continue the progress of promoting cleaner and healthier waterways in Western New York,” said U.S. Congressman Brian Higgins, a member of the Congressional Great Lakes Task Force.
