After a lengthy and highly competitive proposal process, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) New York City Transit (NYCT) awarded D&B a 3-year, six million dollar, contract for environmental consulting services related to petroleum contamination at various NYCT facilities located throughout the five boroughs of New York City. In addition, the contract will include projects at several MTA Bus Company (MTABC) facilities. The scope of services will range from periodic monitoring of groundwater, subsurface investigation/site characterization, ongoing negotiations with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, design of remedial systems, tank tightness testing, oversight of remedial system operation and maintenance (O&M) and the design of new petroleum storage systems. In addition, D&B will be evaluating existing remedial systems currently being operated by NYCT and MTABC to determine if they are operating as intended and to identify possible modifications to the systems to improve overall efficiency and contaminant recovery.
The D&B Team working on the proposal which led to the contract award was headed by Tom Fox who worked closely with Brian Veith throughout the proposal development process, costing, final interviews and contract negotiations. Congratulations to Tom and Brian for their hard work and perseverance! Special thanks go to Matt DeVinney, Steve Tauss, Anthony Caniano, Frank DeVita and Keith Brower who added their various talents throughout the process helping to win the assignment.
