The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) has awarded Pasadena-based Tetra Tech, Inc. an open-ended, indefinite-quantity delivery contract with a cap of $300 million for up to five years, in the part of the Advancing Resilience in Communities (ARC) joint venture.
Under the contract, joint venture ARC will provide technical support services to assess and manage flood risk in the northeastern United States.
Tetra Tech engineers and GIS specialists will use advanced analytics and predictive modeling to assess flood risk, including coastal storm surges. The team will also develop detailed hazard maps and visualization dashboards to communicate these risks to vulnerable communities and to help build their resilience against storm impacts, according to a statement from Tetra Tech.
“The increased impacts of climate change have put communities at increased risk of more frequent and extreme flooding,” said Dan Batrack, President and CEO of Tetra Tech. “Tetra Tech looks forward to continuing to use our Leading with Science approach to help FEMA reduce flood risk and build community resilience. »
In addition to Tetra Tech, the ARC joint venture includes team members from Michael Baker International, Wood, Moffatt and Nichol, Freese and Nichols and NV5 Geospatial.
Headquartered in Pasadena, Tetra Tech has more than 21,000 associates worldwide who work together, providing solutions to complex problems in water, environment, sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy.
