 WESTON WINS CIVILIAN RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT
 SUPPORT SERVICES CONTRACT VALUED AT $34 MILLION
 DOE's Civilian Radioactive Waste Program is Key
 to Solving Major Nuclear Fuel Cycle Challenge
 WEST CHESTER, Pa., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) has awarded Roy F. Weston, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTNA) (WESTON)(R) a multiyear contract for technical services supporting its program to accept, transport, store and permanently dispose of the nation's civilian and defense spent fuel and high level waste, it was announced today.
 According to William J. Marrazzo, president and chief executive officer of the nationwide environmental services company, total contract value is $58 million, with an estimated $34 million going to WESTON. The company will provide support from its Washington, D.C., office over a five-year contract period, two-year base and three one-year options. "We will begin our first tasks this August, which allows for continuity of work without interruption because our current contract is still in effect. We expect to provide ninety-two professionals over the contract term," Marrazzo said, " with support to all facets of the program."
 This contract is the third consecutive award, since 1983, on this program by DOE to WESTON and its team of subcontractors: ICF Kaiser Engineers, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., Rogers & Associates Engineering Corp., and United Engineers and Constructors, Inc.
 "WESTON has been providing support to this program since its 1983 inception", said Lowell Snow, P.E., program manager. "Under this latest contract, WESTON will be providing a more senior level of support for independent technical review and program support services. This increased responsibility enhances and symbolizes WESTON's already strong position as a provider of services to the DOE marketplace."
 Snow said specific tasks will include rendering advice, assistance and recommendations to OCRWM in establishing, monitoring and maintaining overall program requirements, reviewing implementation plans and baselines, supporting policy analyses and interactions with program participants and other public and private institutions.
 The Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management was established by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. Since the first nuclear power plant began operations in the '50s, spent nuclear fuel has been accumulating at the nation's nuclear power plants. The Nuclear Waste Policy Act charged the Department of Energy with the task of accepting and providing for the permanent disposal of this waste, and carrying out this mission in a manner that protects the health and safety of the public and of workers ande? quality of the environment.
 Currently, the department is focusing its efforts on characterizing Yucca Mountain in Nevada as a potential repository site, working with the Office of the Nuclear Waste Negotiator to identify volunteer states to host a storage facility (the Monitored Retrievable Storage facility), and providing transportation systems to transfer the fuel from the power plants to DOE facilities. The schedule calls for first receipt of spent fuel by DOE in 1998, at the Monitored Retrievable Storage facility, and first receipt of spent fuel at the permanent repository in 2010.
 WESTON is a leading full-service environmental engineering, design and consulting firm providing nationwide analytical laboratory services, consulting and engineering, remediation, facility construction and operations, technical information management and major program management services.
 WESTON's clients include many Fortune 500 companies and most major cities in the country. The company is a principle provider of services to the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Energy.
