Tetra Tech provided the following response to the City regarding this accusation:
“Tetra Tech has never been tried or convicted of falsifying soil samples. The allegations made on recent newscasts are unsubstantiated and there is no evidence to support the accusations.
“When sample results at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard appeared not to be representative at the site, Tetra Tech immediately investigated and reported its findings and corrective actions to the Navy and Nuclear Regulatory Commission. No restriction, suspension or qualification of any license, certification, or registration occurred, and Tetra Tech’s NRC Radioactive Material License is in full good standing.”
