EPA awards tech support contract to CSC for Hazard Ranking System

Technical, logistical and information management support to assist EPA in evaluating hazardous waste sites in US

By CBR Staff Writer

CSC, a provider technology-enabled offering and services, said that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded the company a contract to provide technical support for its Hazard Ranking System (HRS) and National Priorities List (NPL) programme.

Under this contract, CSC will provide technical, logistical and information management support to assist EPA in evaluating hazardous waste sites throughout the US.

The HRS is the principal mechanism EPA uses to place uncontrolled waste sites on the NPL, which is a list of approximately 1,280 abandoned hazardous waste sites considered to pose long-term threats to human health and the environment via contamination in ground water, surface water, soil or air.

This work will help identify those sites that pose the highest relative threat to human health and the environment for further investigation and cleanup.

CSC North American Public Sector president James Sheaffer said they were pleased to continue their 18-year relationship with the EPA on this contract to evaluate the hazardous waste sites.

"In performing this work, CSC proudly supports the EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment," James said.
