Pasadena-based consulting and engineering services firm Tetra Tech Inc. has been awarded a $25 million contract by the District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) for technical support services for assessment and remediation of contaminated sediments in the tidal portion of the Anacostia River in Washington, DC.

Under the five-year contract, Tetra Tech will support assessment and restoration activities at sites throughout the District as part of efforts initiated by the DC government to revitalize the river and the surrounding communities to promote a more sustainable urban environment.

“Tetra Tech has provided outstanding technical support to the DOEE for the past six years,” Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO, said. “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.”

The company will also 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 said in a statement.

Tetra Tech scientists also will conduct investigation, risk assessment, and remedial activities at sites throughout the area to support the Department of Energy and Environment’s mission of protecting human health and the environment.
