The Navy awarded the Shaw Group Inc a contract for up to 5 years that could be worth $150 M. See the press release here. This is the fourth award for this type of work to the company. They will do environmental remediation at various Navy and USMC bases on the East Coast. Similar contracts have or will be awarded for the other geographical areas of the country. Once again this demonstrates that the US military spends a great deal of money on things other then weapons and soldiers. Military bases are dirty places that have in cases decades of dirt to clean up, not to talk about spills or accidents that occur due to current operations. Work of this type is critical to keep the bases functioning.
