Pasadena-based engineering consultants Tetra Tech, has been awarded a five-year multiple-award contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
As part of the five-year, multiple-award contract the company will assess and manage risks for dams and levee systems.
The company will also perform site characterization studies, engineering evaluations, and hydrologic analyses related to the safety of dams and levee systems, according to a report posted at digitaljournal.com.
“Increased impacts from climate change have placed the nation’s dam and levee systems under additional stress from extreme weather events and rising sea levels in coastal areas,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech chairman and CEO.
“Tetra Tech looks forward to continuing to use our Leading with Science approach to support the USACE in reducing flood risks and maintaining public safety,” Batrack said.
The Tetra Tech team will use advanced analytics to assess structural integrity and develop risk-based management approaches for dam and levee safety nationwide.
