PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the Company a $32 million, single-award contract to expand the delivery of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services in Uganda.
Under the five-year Uganda Sanitation for Health Activity contract, Tetra Tech will provide technical services to increase household access to sanitation and water services and improve health through evidence-based behavior change campaigns in homes, schools, and health facilities.

To help ensure long-term sustainability of project outcomes, Tetra Tech will collaborate with local, private sector service providers to encourage investment in WASH facilities, facilitate public-private partnerships, and develop innovative financing arrangements for sanitation and hygiene services.
“Tetra Tech has been working with USAID for more than 20 years to develop technical solutions to improve access to water and sanitation services in developing countries,” said Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO Dan Batrack. “We are pleased to continue to support USAID’s efforts to improve health outcomes through the Uganda Sanitation for Health Activity.”
