Environmental Response Team (ERT) Laboratory and Analytic Support

ERT’s fixed and mobile laboratories provide a wide variety of environmental sample analysis support for site cleanup activities (remedial and removal), emergency responses and special events. These laboratories perform routine, non-routine and specialized inorganic and organic analyses for air, soil gas, soil/sediment, water, tissue and other matrices. The analyses are primarily for ongoing EPA/ERT projects (engineering/remediation, biology, geology, air monitoring and other field activities).
