BATON ROUGE, LA, Jan. 14, 2008 -- The Shaw Group Inc. announced that its Environmental & Infrastructure Group has been awarded a two-year task order contract extension for work at the Linde Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) site in Tonawanda, N.Y. The task order extension will be executed under Shaw's Kansas City Total Environmental Restoration Contract program.

Shaw's work at the former uranium processing site includes remedial action, building demolition, radiological characterizations, excavation, transportation and disposal, water treatment, final status surveys and site restoration activities. Shaw has completed work at five other FUSRAP sites and has ongoing contracts at two additional sites.

Oakley, president of Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure Inc. "Shaw will continue to leverage its institutional knowledge of the site and to provide cost-effective solutions to our client."

Shaw and its predecessor companies have been working at the Linde site for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers since 1999. The FUSRAP program was established to identify, investigate, and clean up or control sites previously used by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and its predecessor, the Manhattan Engineer District.
