The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently awarded the Tetra Tech team with another contract to support its Environmental Response Team, including radiation protection from Dade Moeller, a Washington-based company that supports safety, radiological and environmental operations.

This is the third contract awarded to Tetra Tech and carries a five-year period of performance. As per the terms, Dade Moeller will continue to contribute to the EPA’s preparedness for events with radioactive or nuclear material, during which it is responsible for the nation’s environmental response. Dade Moeller contributes emergency preparedness and rapid response services.

The EPA is charged with maintaining instrumentation and trained personal at Environmental Response Team locations in Edison, New Jersey; Erlanger, Kentucky; and Las Vegas, Nevada. Dade Moeller’s role on the Tetra Tech team is to maintain the radiation monitoring instruments at these locations, as well as to train the EPA personnel on their use. The company also trains agency staff on responding to incidents and pre-deploying for large gatherings such as major sporting events.

“We are pleased to have been an essential member of the Tetra Tech team over the past 10 years, and to continue our support of EPA’s national radiological preparedness and response capabilities,” Dade Moeller President David McCormack, said. “This contract represents an important part of the nation’s mission to protect the public and the environment from potential events involving radioactive and nuclear materials.”
