The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Pittsburgh District has awarded a $1.2 million contract for the removal of accumulated sediments and vegetation along the Stonycreek River located in Cambria County, Pennsylvania.

The contract was awarded to Green World Contracting Company of Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania.

According to USACE, the residents of Johnstown will benefit from this project as it will allow for unimpeded water flow and reduce the risk of flooding.

“The district is absolutely looking forward to leveraging our expertise to remove the sediment and vegetation from this flood control project, which has impeded the effectiveness of the project for years,” said Col. Andrew Short, commander, Pittsburgh District.

“Our team is extremely proud to lead this cleanup effort and deliver a more effective project for the Johnstown residents.” 

The contract work is estimated to be completed by September 2020.
