The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Albuquerque District, has awarded Tetra Tech a $40 million, multiple-award assessment and engineering design contract focused on flood risk management and erosion protection, primarily in the southwestern United States. Tetra Tech will support USACE in its mission to reduce overall flood risk by improving the resiliency of structures such as levees and floodwalls that protect the public and improve the natural environment.

Under this five-year contract, Tetra Tech’s engineers will conduct hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, river and groundwater modeling, climate change evaluations, geomorphic assessments, and sediment transport analyses. We will design flood control structures that optimize water resources and reduce streambank erosion.

“Tetra Tech has worked continuously with the USACE Albuquerque District since 1998, providing comprehensive water resources engineering support,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “We have successfully completed more than 50 projects within the District’s footprint, and we look forward to our continued support to the District in designing resilient flood control structures.”
