TRC Wins $36 Million Contract to Oversee Clean Up of FAA Superfund Site in NJ

TRC, a leading provider of end-to-end engineering, consulting and construction management solutions fueled by innovative technology, has been awarded a nine-year, $36 million contract from the Federal Aviation Administration to oversee remediation of an FAA-owned Superfund site in Atlantic County.

The contract involves the 5,000-acre William J. Hughes Technical Center, which is eight miles northwest of Atlantic City and includes Atlantic City International Airport.

“TRC is proud to be assisting the FAA with this important project to restore and protect the environment in and around the nation’s premier air transportation research facility,” said Paul Arnold, TRC’s vice president of engineering, construction and remediation. “Not only is this work critically important to the FAA, but also Atlantic City area residents, businesses and visitors.

Under the Superfund Architect/Engineer Environmental Services contract, TRC will lead remedial investigation, risk assessment and design work, including innovative in situ technologies and remediation of aviation fuels, pesticides, heavy metals, PCBs, mercury and emerging contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). More than 30 areas of concern with potential or actual environmental impacts have been identified at the site.

TRC will also perform:

  • Groundwater and surface water modeling
  • Wetlands and hydrology monitoring
  • Hydrogeological and engineering studies
  • Long-term groundwater and seep sampling
  • Ecological and human health risk assessments
  • Natural resources damage assessments

The William J. Hughes Technical Center serves as the nation’s premier air transportation system laboratory, testing, evaluating and validating the FAA’s full spectrum of aviation systems. It is also responsible for developing scientific solutions to current and future air transportation safety challenges by conducting applied research and development.

TRC has been serving as the FAA’s engineering contractor at the site since 1986.
