ERT Expands Support on US Army Corps of Engineers Contracts

In the first two months of 2013, ERT has won four task orders and/or contract modifications to continue supporting the US Army Corps of Engineers. Two of the task orders were awarded under our Louisville Environmental and Restoration Services Contract (ERSC): Nike SL-10 Launch Area and Bluegrass Army Depot. Through our Louisville 8a contract, we were awarded a task order to provide on-site environmental services at Fort Stewart, GA. Finally, a modification to our existing task order providing environmental services was awarded at Fort Polk, Louisiana.
