The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Environet a $70 million contract to continue the clean up of the Waikoloa Maneuver Area on Hawaii. This contract will continue the next phase of removing unexploded ordnance and hazardous material from the former World War II training site.

Environet will work on about 4,000 acres of the site which at its peak utilized almost two hundred square miles of the island. The large site is rated one of the highest priorities for clean up. The Army spent $82 million over the last seven years on the last contract and the total clean up could take another thirty-eight and cost hundreds of million of dollars. As part of these contracts it is hoped that many Hawaii residents will be hired to conduct the work.
