Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today it has been awarded a five-year, $23 million single-award contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assess and reduce the human health and ecological risk from contaminated fish, sediments, and water-borne pathogens in fresh and marine waters.
Through a combination of field work, laboratory analysis, modeling, and data interpretation, Tetra Tech will support the Standards and Health Protection Division within EPA’s Office of Water to develop strategies that will address both the prevention and impacts of specific pollutants in our waters. The presence of contaminants, such as water-borne microbes, and toxins from various sources threaten drinking water supplies, recreational waters, and many aquatic plants and animals.
“Tetra Tech is pleased to provide continued support to EPA’s Standards and Health Protection Division in developing innovative solutions to some of today’s most complex water quality issues,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO.
