Arrowhead Contracting, Inc., has been awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract to provide cleanup, response and construction services for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at former uranium mining-related sites on or within the Navajo Nation. Future work will primarily take place in Arizona and New Mexico. Scope of work elements may include:

- Analytical services
- Demolition services
- Construction, construction maintenance and monitoring, construction support facilities, and logistical support for response actions

The Navajo Nation encompasses more than 27,000 square miles, spread between three states in the Four Corners area. The unique geology of the region makes the Navajo Nation rich in uranium, a radioactive ore in high demand after the development of atomic power and weapons at the close of World War II in the 1940s. Approximately four million tons of uranium ore were extracted during mining operations within the Navajo Nation from 1944 to 1986.
The Contract will have a capacity of $220M, comprised of a one-year base period and four one-year option periods. Task orders under the AMRCS Contract may be cost reimbursable or firm fixed price, contingent upon the Government’s assessment of project risk. Individual task orders will be competed among three Contract holders.
