A joint venture led by Tetra Tech has been contracted the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Sacramento District to assess and manage risks for dams and levee systems in the western United States for up to five years
Under the $110 million deal, Tetra Tech will perform site characterization studies, environmental assessments, engineering evaluations, and hydrologic analyses related to the safety of dams and levee systems. The project team will use advanced analytics and predictive modeling to assess structural integrity and design risk-based management approaches for dam and levee safety.
“Increased impacts from climate change have placed the nation’s dam and levee systems under additional stress from extreme weather events,” 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, maintaining public safety, and restoring ecosystems.”
