URS was selected for the four-year task order from a pool of pre-qualified contractors under an existing indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for a wide range of environmental tasks for the DOE. Under the terms of the task order, URS will deactivate, demolish and remove process facilities and nearby contaminated soil associated with the SPRU operations.
