VERSAR SIGNS CONTRACT WITH VIRGINIA WATER CONTROL BOARD

 VERSAR SIGNS CONTRACT WITH VIRGINIA WATER CONTROL BOARD
 SPRINGFIELD, Va., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (AMEX: VSR), a Northern Virginia-based company, announced today the signing of a contract with the Virginia Water Control Board (VWCB) to investigate and clean up underground storage tank releases. Versar is one of 10 firms selected.
 As the state governmental body responsible for addressing groundwater contamination, the VWCB has contracted with Versar to assist in investigating and remediating releases of petroleum from leaking underground storage tanks in the Commonwealth.
 During the two-year program, Versar will perform several tasks for the state. These include assessing contamination to drinking water supplies, developing corrective action plans and implementing clean-up measures and helping establish alternate water supplies, where necessary.
 The contract will be funded by the state gasoline tax and the Federal Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund. Approximately $14 million is currently available for the hundreds of identified release sites where the owner is either unable to pay for the cleanup or has paid the maximum required by the state for owners of leaking tanks.
 Ben Rawls, president and CEO of Versar, said: "Versar is very pleased to have the opportunity to apply the expertise we have gained in becoming a national leader in the underground tank service area to support our home state of Virginia. We are proud to be working in partnership with the state to mitigate any threat to the water supply or any other environmental consequence posing harm to the public."
 Versar, Inc., headquartered in Springfield, is a publicly held national environmental risk management company which provides a wide variety of scientific and technical services to solve environmental and health and safety problems caused by pollution, hazardous materials and toxic substances.
