Earth Tech Inc., a business unit of Tyco International Ltd., and a global provider of consulting, engineering and construction services, has been selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Omaha District to provide environmental restoration services at MacDill Air Force Base (AFB) near Tampa, FL. The performance-based task order contract was awarded for one year with two optional years, for a total value of as much as $9.8 million.
Earth Tech will provide environmental restoration and closure services at 22 sites at MacDill AFB, part of the Air Force Air Mobility Command. The work will include in-situ groundwater treatment; the demolition and removal of a small arms firing range; site monitoring and surveillance; soil and sediment removal; regulatory agency coordination; and community relations support. Earth Tech will serve as the prime contractor on the project, working with subcontractors Bhate Environmental Associates and Black & Veatch.
The MacDill AFB task order falls under a five-year USACE Omaha District Environmental Restoration Services contract that Earth Tech won in 2003.
