The purpose of this contract is to address terrestrial and coastal damages in Saudi Arabia resulting from the 1991 Gulf War. The UNCC awarded the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) funding to address these damages.
The terrestrial component objectives are to level sand walls and berms and fill-in trenches that were constructed in the desert to protect military activity. The civil works will be followed by the establishment of re-vegetation islands to provide a seed source for further natural recovery.
The purpose of the coastal/marine component of the Remediation and Restoration Programme (RRP) is to address damages that occurred to the intertidal habitats of the Gulf coast of the KSA, specifically the salt marshes and tidal flats that lie within the coastal embayments, as a result of the oil released to surface waters.
The primary objective of the coastal component is to restore the hydrologic function to the degraded tidal channels within these salt marsh habitats. In addition to the salt marsh systems, the remediation and restoration of other intertidal habitats includes moderately exposed sand beaches and moderately exposed and sheltered tidal flats.
The scope of our services is to monitor all Remediation Contracts in progress for compliance with the quality and quantity requirements specified in the contracts. Daily on-site observations of the Remediation Contractors’ work is being carried out at all active sites for the purposes of determining that the work conforms to the remediation contract, maintains the integrity of the design concept and to validate the quantity of work accomplished.
