EnviroScience Inc. Awarded Five-Year $37.3 Million EPA Contract for National Aquatic Resource Survey

Stow Based Business to Measure the Health of the Nation’s Water over Next 5 Years

 
PRLog - Mar. 27, 2012 - HUDSON, Ohio -- STOW, OHIO (March 27, 2012) – EnviroScience, Inc. has been selected as a prime contractor for a five-year $37.3 million contract with the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Aquatic Resource Surveys (NARS) program.

“The expertise of our biologists, lab specialists and fishery scientists makes us a natural fit for the EPA’s requirements of gauging the health of the nation’s water,” said Martin A. Hilovsky, President of EnviroScience, Inc. “It’s exciting to be selected for this contract. We expect to add at least eight new employees to our staff of fifty.”

The NARS program provides statistical surveys by working with state, tribal and other federal agency partners of over 1,500 randomly selected lakes, rivers, streams, coastal waterways and wetlands around the country. Each year the NARS program focuses on different waterbody types and tasks, including research, training, equipping teams with the proper supplies, gathering samples and overseeing the quality assurance and quality control for each type of waterbody.

EnviroScience will ensure that the proper monitoring designs, indicators and methods allow the EPA to combine the information from all over the country to effectively answer questions about the quality of the nation’s waters and be able to track any changes over time.  The company will be monitoring and assessing the condition of water across the U.S. over a five year period by designing tests, gathering field samples, measuring lab results and reporting data.

Because EnviroScience has been awarded the contract as a prime contractor, they will be bidding on various task orders each year. To aid them with completing all the governmental task orders, EnviroScience is teaming with Great Lakes Environmental Center (GLEC) from Traverse City, Michigan. EnviroScience’s well documented experience with lake management, environmental field testing, biomonitoring and quality control combines well with the GLEC’s prior experience with EPA and the NARS program. As a result, EnviroScience expects to successfully win a large number of  the tasks that will be awarded as part of the $37.3 million contract. In addition to the  EnviroScience/GLEC team, a Herndon, Virginia company has also been selected as a potential contractor on the EPA award contract.
