May 1, 2023 — EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) remediation services contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)–New England District. This single award task order contract covers a 5-year term and is valued at up to $25 million. The first task order, with an awarded value of more than $8 million, is to provide design and execution of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) at the Former Nike Battery PR-58 and Disaster Training Village Area Formerly Used Defense Site in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
“EA has provided continuous support to USACE and its clients for more than 40 years, working on 600-plus task orders and executing more than $900 million in environmental services,” said Gordy Porter, Senior Vice President and Business Unit Director. “Our team, including partner TerraTherm, Inc., brings to the New England District extensive professional expertise in ISTR combined with incorporation of strong risk mitigation measures and environmentally sustainable methodologies.”
The 44-acre site was historically used by the U.S. Department of Defense over a period of 32 years. Task orders initiated under this IDIQ contract will involve environmental remediation services to address a source area of contamination resulting from past Department of Defense activities, including pre-remediation field investigation; bench testing; as well as ISTR design, construction, and operation.
“TerraTherm is excited to support EA on the Nike PR-58 ISTR project in North Kingstown,” said Jim Galligan, TerraTherm Senior Vice President of Operations. “This is our third federally funded project award with EA in the past year. We look forward to successfully implementing this challenging bedrock treatment project with the EA team in support of the New England District’s program goals.”
