Munitions and contaminants: Aecom picked again for army’s land-remediation contract

Aecom has been selected by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Baltimore District to continue providing nationwide environmental remediation services through the MAMMS III contract.

MAMMS stands for Multiple Award Military Munitions Services, and the work includes ridding land previously used by the US Department of Defense of munitions and contaminants so it can be returned to civilian use.

The contract has a shared programme ceiling of $240m and includes five base years and up to two additional option years.

"Our dedicated environmental experts consistently deliver for the USACE and have a flawless safety record on this technically complex and challenging work," said Lara Poloni, Aecom’s president. "We look forward to continuing to partner closely with the US Department of Defense and local communities to return previously restricted lands to safe, sustainable, recreational and residential uses."

Aecom has supported the USACE Baltimore District’s environmental remediation programmes for more than 26 years. Under the new contract, Aecom and its specialty subcontractors will continue to provide a wide range of environmental services, including investigations, field activities, engineering, remedial actions and design, and support for environmental-related regulatory programmes.

"We’re proud to continue this longstanding partnership with the USACE to restore land, water, and air quality to sites nationwide," said Frank Sweet, chief executive of Aecom’s global environment business.

"This important work ties directly to our firmwide environmental, social and governance objectives, which are rooted in our commitment to delivering a better world."
