Environmental Characterization and Risk Assessment


The Environmental Assessment (EA) technical group works with clients at federal, private, and international sites to develop comprehensive environmental monitoring programs and advanced scientific and technological solutions for long-term stewardship of waste sites. Through technical innovation we have increased the efficiency of monitoring programs and developed better techniques for long-term management of hazardous and radioactive wastes.

The EA group comprises highly motivated and talented staff focusing on meeting clients' needs in environmental, ecological, biotechnology, and cultural areas. In addition, the staff expertise includes environmental characterization, monitoring, and remediation design studies. The availability of staff who possess diverse skill sets enables us to provide a multidisciplinary team approach that builds on the collective capabilities of our team members. Staff are also actively involved in environmental education, public interaction, technical presentations, and professional societies.
