Published on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 | 7:30 pm

Pasadena-based Tetra Tech, Inc., has been awarded a $300 million contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to find out and repair whatever needs fixing at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
In techno science-speak, the global consulting and engineering services provider company will investigate, design, and implement remedial actions at the two adjacent coastal Florida facilities.
The five-year contract calls for regulatory documentation, contaminant investigation, remedial design, and groundwater and soil remediation, according to a Feb. 19 statement from the company.
“Tetra Tech has been ‘Leading with Science’ to provide technical services to NASA at the Kennedy Space Center for the past 16 years,” Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO, said. “We are pleased to continue delivering innovative solutions to restore the properties at NASA sites.”
Kennedy Space Center, originally known as the NASA Launch Operations Center, is one of 10 NASA field centers throughout the United States. Since 1968, Kennedy Space Center has been the federal agency’s primary launch center of human spaceflight, through the Apollo, Skylab, and Space Shuttle programs.
Linked to the Kennedy Space Center by bridges and causeways is the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), an installation of the U.S. Air Force Space Command’s 45th Space Wing.
Since NASA was founded in 1958, management at the two entities have worked together in an integrated fashion, sharing resources, and even owning facilities on each other’s property.
Tetra Tech supports support United States and global commercial and government clients focused on water, environment, infrastructure, resource management, energy, and international development. It has more than 17,000 associates worldwide.
