Tetra Tech said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) has awarded the Company a contract valued at USD60 million. Under this five-year, single-award contract, Tetra Tech will provide comprehensive technical and analytical services to evaluate ecological and human health risks in freshwater, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems.
Tetra Tech’s researchers will provide technical support services to ORD’s National Center for Environmental Assessment to develop and evaluate tools that are used by decision-makers in safeguarding public health and the environment. These tools include dynamic water quality, biogeochemical, and pollutant transport models that simulate impacts ranging from large scale global changes as well as regional and local land-use changes and best management practices.
The engineering company will perform statistical, economic, and spatial analyses to assess vulnerability and resilience to various environmental factors. In addition, Tetra Tech will design and maintain databases that support digital access and data analytics to facilitate analyses by ORD scientists.
“For over 30 years, Tetra Tech has supported EPA’s research programs,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “We are pleased to continue our support of the EPA by developing innovative methods grounded in science that protect public health and the environment.”
