Tetra Tech announced that the District of Columbia (DC) Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) awarded the Company a $25 million contract for technical support services for assessment and remediation of contaminated sediments in the tidal portion of the Anacostia River, a heavily urbanized river flowing through the nation’s capital. Tetra Tech will support assessment and restoration activities at sites throughout the District as part of large-scale efforts initiated by the DC government to revitalize the river and the surrounding communities to promote a more sustainable urban environment.

Under this five-year contract, Tetra Tech will further define areas of sediment contamination in the Anacostia River and begin design of the remedy using predictive modeling, field sampling, and data analytics. Tetra Tech scientists also will conduct investigation, risk assessment, and remedial activities at sites throughout Washington, DC, to support the DOEE with its mission of protecting human health and the environment.

“Tetra Tech has provided outstanding technical support to the DOEE for the past six years,” said 
Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “We are pleased to continue delivering innovative solutions to return the Anacostia River to swimmable and fishable condition which will benefit DC residents, visitors, and neighboring communities.”
