Published Sept. 27, 2011

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $5.97 million contract Sept. 27 to Four M. Contracting Inc. of Winters, Calif., for work at Morrison Creek in South Sacramento.

“This project ties in with some of the other construction along Morrison Creek completed in previous years to significantly reduce the risk of flooding to the people in that community,” said project manager Marshall Marik. “We still have a lot of work to do on other parts of the system, but this is a truly big step in the process.”

Construction is scheduled to begin in early May 2012. Completion is planned for October 2012. Approximately 40 jobs will be created as part of the project construction.

"It's great that a local contractor was awarded this work,” said Col. Bill Leady, commander of the Sacramento District. “So, in addition to being a great flood risk reduction project, it will also be a job creator for the Sacramento area."

Four M. Contracting Inc. is a U.S. Small Business Administration 8(a)-designated small business. The Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Business Development Program is designed to help small, disadvantaged businesses compete for federal contracts.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental restoration and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight western states, including California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming
