WESTON AWARDED EPA HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS CONTRACT RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Roy F. Weston, Inc.
(NASDAQ: WSTNA) (Weston) announced today that it was recently awarded a three year contract with EPA at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina to assist the agency in the development and validation of sampling and analytical procedures for hazardous air pollutants measurement.
James C. Serne, vice president of Weston, said the contract, worth a potential $5.9 million dollars, "is the largest air quality contract Weston has had, and its first major air pollutants contract with EPA." Weston has begun work on 12 assignments, which are valued at $750,000. Title III of the Clean Air Act requires EPA to set emissions standards for 189 hazardous air pollutants. Weston has been contracted to assist the agency in developing the necessary sampling and analysis procedures for gathering emissions data. "There are hundreds of different methods to collect air samples and Weston is responsible for developing and improving methods that will provide valid results for a wide range of emission sources. The detection limits need to be very low because we are dealing with air contaminants in concentrations in the parts per million (PPM) and parts per billion (PPB) range," said Serne. "We are conducting sampling and analyses for many different industries, from large to small manufacturing facilities, including everything from hospitals to steel plants," he said. The project will require the coordination of Weston employees in the company's Raleigh, Auburn, Ala., and West Chester, Pa., offices. Weston employs more than 100 dedicated air specialists, ranking it among the country's top providers of air quality management services. Weston is a full-service environmental and health and safety firm providing nationwide analytical laboratory services, consulting and engineering, remediation, facility construction and operations, technical information management and major program management services. Weston is headquartered in West Chester, and operates a network of four analytical laboratories and 45 offices, including Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. /delval/ -0- 1/24/92 /CONTACT: James C.
