The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) recently granted Tetra Tech, Inc. a five-year, $20 million contract that will enable Tetra Tech to evaluate, test and report on biological, chemical, radiological and other potentially contaminating agents.
Tetra Tech has technical support services that can develop effective technologies and tools to mitigate and detect contaminants before they reach urban areas, drinking water supplies or wastewater systems. The tools may implement strategies to analyze various samples for a range of contaminants, treat wastewater that has been generated during a period of decontamination, and monitor the quality of water.
“Tetra Tech has supported EPA’s mission since the 1970s to protect human health and the environment, and we are pleased to broaden our services to the NHSRC with the award of this contract,” Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO Dan Batrack said.
Tetra Tech provides engineering, consulting, constructing management and program management services to government and commercial clients concerned with resource management, water, infrastructure, environment and energy. The company has approximately 13,000 staff around the world.
