DVIDs reports that the US Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, awarded a task order to Sol Engineering LLC, an 8(a) small business, in the amount of US$239,380.19 for environmental services to include a study comprised of collection and chemical analyses of water and sediment samples from the federally-maintained Brazos Island Harbor, Entrance Channel and Brazos Island Harbor, Brownsville Channel.
Routine testing allows staff to analyze and evaluate shoal material to determine whether unacceptable impacts would result from dredging operations prior to maintenance of the channel.
“The Corps conducts chemical analysis sampling routinely on maintenance dredging projects throughout the Galveston District in order to ensure the sediment dredged is not contaminated,” said Lisa Finn, a physical scientist with the USACE Galveston Environmental Section.
“Through sampling analysis, we are able to review data to make certain we remain in compliance with multiple federal regulations, including the Clean Water Act.”
The USACE Galveston District employs an environmental management framework to provide structure and accountability within its business processes to help enhance and expand the positive impacts of its mission, while reducing, mitigating or eliminating potential negative impacts.
