Source: Amec Foster Wheeler

AMEC Earth & Environmental (Plymouth Meeting, PA) has received a five-year contract from the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to investigate and remediate sites contaminated by dry-cleaning solvents. DENR has identified more than 300 sites-both current and former dry-cleaning facilities-that may have been contaminated with perchloroethylene, a chemical once widely used in the dry-cleaning business. Under the contract, AMEC will conduct soil, groundwater, and indoor air quality assessments, undertake risk assessments and groundwater modeling, and perform cleanups to address vapor intrusion and water contamination issues. The contract, which is being funded by North Carolina's Dry-cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act program, has an estimated value of $10 million.
