Tetra Tech: Worldwide Environmental Remediation Services Program
Tetra Tech, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a Worldwide Environmental Remediation Services (WERS) contract by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville (Huntsville Center). The contract is focused on munitions response and other hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW) remediation services. Tetra Tech is one of seven large businesses that were awarded this five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which has a shared capacity of $965 million. Tetra Tech has held predecessor contracts for worldwide unexploded ordnance services since 2000.
The WERS contract includes response activities anywhere munitions are or have been stored, evaluated, treated, disposed of, or used for military training and operations.
“Unexploded ordnance cleanup is an important part of many remediation programs,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO. “Tetra Tech is pleased to support the Huntsville Center as it seeks to return lands and waters to safe and productive use. These cleanup activities will help the U.S. Department of Defense achieve its Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) goals and support the Military Munitions Response Program (MMRP) worldwide.”
