Tetra Tech has received a potential five-year, $60 million contract for comprehensive technical and analytical services to the Environmental Protection Agency‘s research and development office.
The company said Monday it will help EPA assess the ecological and human health risks present in freshwater, marine and terrestrial ecosystems under the single-award contract.
Dan Batrack, chairman and CEO of Tetra Tech, said the company aims to develop new methods to support the EPA in efforts to protect public health and the environment.
Tetra Tech researchers will also work with the agency’s National Center for Environmental Assessment to design and assess tools that decision-makers can use to protect the environment.
The tools will cover dynamic water quality, biogeochemical, and pollutant transport models designed to project the effect of global changes, regional and local land-use changes.
The company added it will conduct economic, statistical and spatial assessments to help EPA evaluate the vulnerability and resilience of environments depending on various factors.
