Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it has been awarded a $17 million program for excavation and construction activities associated with the environmental remediation of dioxin contamination at Vietnam’s Da Nang Airport.

Tetra Tech will manage the construction of access roadways, build a thermal desorption pile containment structure, excavate and dewater dioxin-contaminated soils and sediments, place the soils and sediments into the pile containment structure for treatment by others, and restore the site.
