Tetra Tech EC, Inc.’s work at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard

Tetra Tech EC, Inc.’s first Navy contract at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard was awarded in 2002. They provided cleanup of about 20 percent of the land surface at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and were among many contractors providing remedial services at the site.

What went wrong at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and how it was fixed

In 2012 at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, the Navy identified soil sampling data at one location that did not appear representative of the sampling area. Tetra Tech EC immediately conducted a full investigation. At its own expense, they analyzed 70,000 sample results, identified areas for resampling, and conducted additional remediation where necessary. After implementing corrective actions there were no repeat occurrences.

Tetra Tech EC fully documented the investigation and completed corrective actions with full review by and coordination with Navy and regulators. The Navy also conducted an independent review and released its own report in 2014. The report concluded that “The Navy’s contractor corrected identified deficient conditions and incorporated additional QC steps to avoid recurrence.”

Wrongdoing committed by three individuals at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard

Stephen Rolfe and Justin Hubbard are former employees of Tetra Tech EC,  and subcontractor New World Technology. Tetra Tech EC learned in May 2018 that Rolfe and Hubbard admitted to falsifying reports at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and have been sentenced by the U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Their plea statements align with the findings of Tetra Tech EC’s 2014 report regarding soil data anomalies identified in 2012. Tetra Tech EC fully supports actions of DOJ regarding the illegal actions of Rolfe and Hubbard. Anthony Smith, a former employee of New World Technology, has publicly admitted to assisting Rolfe and Hubbard with sample swapping and has made multiple false public statements.
