Bristol awarded EPA contract
Bristol Environmental Remediation Services, LLC, a member of Bristol Alliance of Companies (Bristol), was awarded a contract from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct Site Characterization and Remediation of Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) on Indian Reservations across the Lower 48.
The work is being conducted for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District. The two-year contract is for $5,598,174; if all options and award terms are exercised, the award would exceed $20 million and extend to seven years.
The contract is a follow-on, and is Bristol’s fourth consecutive contract for remediation of leaking USTs with the EPA over the past 10 years.
Bristol received the first EPA contract more than a decade ago, eventually completing work on 12 different Indian Reservations and related services. Most of that work was conducted in Arizona, New Mexico and Idaho.
In 2007, Bristol Remediation was awarded a five-year, $15 million contract with the EPA to remediate leaking USTs in Indian Country. Under this nationwide EPA contract, Bristol and the EPA worked with Tribes at more than 250 sites on 27 Indian Reservations within the U.S.
In 2009, Bristol was awarded a three-year, $1.2 million contract with the EPA to remediate leaking USTs in Region 8, which includes 27 Tribal Nations, as well as Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. The contract included site assessments and characterizations, and recommending site closures for areas contaminated by leaking USTS. Under the contract, Bristol worked on five reservations.
Congress amended the Solid Waste Disposal Act to create the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund in 1986 to address spills from federally regulated underground storage tanks. The EPA, which oversees the work, requires that leaking underground storage tank sites be cleaned up to restore and protect groundwater resources.
