EPA Selects Abt Associates for $107M Water Quality Assessment IDIQ; Mike Conti Comments

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded Abt Associates a potential $107.8 million contract to provide modeling and data management services for the agency’s water quality assessments.

Abt said in a release the five-year contract covers technical support for assessment and watershed protection across the U.S.

The company provided the EPA similar services to help assess the Chesapeake Bay and Florida rivers, lakes and estuaries, said Mike Conti, vice president of the environment and resources division.

Conti added a core component of the contract involves calculating the total maximum daily load, used to form strategies on assessing water bodies and getting them to achieve quality standards.

The company will work with the EPA’s office of wetlands, oceans and watersheds.
