Mississippi Gulf Coast – Hurricane Katrina Work

Eutaw Construction Company, Inc. mobilized and conducted debris removal for the City of Bay St. Louis, the town of Waveland and Hancock County, Mississippi. The work force consisted of a management staff as well as a quality control staff of over 175 people. Eutaw Construction performed debris removal, quality control services and management services under the Corps of Engineers contract #W912P8-05-D-0025 in Hancock County, Mississippi. Eutaw Construction assigned quality control supervisors and personnel to oversee the removal of every cubic yard hauled in Hancock County, Mississippi. The quality control personnel provided oversight on the activities of collection crews and responded to any requests or complaints from the contracting officer representative or property owners. Eutaw has managed and provided quality control services for approximately 5,200,000 cubic yards of debris. Eutaw provided labor, equipment and materials to operate and maintain the Temporary Debris Storage and Reduction Site on the Henley property in Hancock County. Track excavators, dozers, wheel loaders, water trucks, burners as well as other equipment were maintained at the site. Over 1,000,000 cubic yards were separated and reduced during the project. Eutaw construction managed one separation site and provided quality control to three separation sites for the duration of this project.

Mississippi/Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast – BP Oil Spill Cleanup

Eutaw is providing all personnel and project management services for the scheduling and training of up to 2,000 workers and support staff to deploy booms, perform shallow water skimming operations and the removal of oil from the Mississippi beaches. Our employees worked in full force to clean up approximately 700 tons of oil to date from the shoreline, barrier islands, and coastal waters in an effort to restore them to pre-spill conditions. In addition to the front line management of the oil spill, our team members established a working relationship with the Federal, State and Local government officials allowing us to provide an added benefit to BP as we eliminated the “learning curve” that a new company would encounter. Our management group created and maintained a database of approximately 2,500 workers that could be deployed at anytime. We also created and maintained a database with equipment and logistical items that would be required to support these workers. We designed, constructed, operated and maintained the 50-acre staging area / rally point for the manpower and equipment in the Mississippi BP operations. Our team provided HAZWOPER training and refresher courses for personnel as well as training for the following safety programs: Fit for Duty Program, Incident / Accident Reporting, Near Miss / Unsafe Condition Reporting / Job Safety Analysis Reporting and Tailgate Safety Meetings. We have also instituted a Safety Incentive Program designed to reward safety-minded workers.
