Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it has been awarded
an $18.6 million contract to help the U.S. Agency for International
Development (USAID) increase access to renewable energy sources and
improve energy efficient practices in Colombia through a combination of
project development support, technical assistance, and other activities
