Weston has proven its signature capability to EPA at the ready to respond when time-critical and emergency situations arise.

Over the last 35 years, Weston has executed 37 prime contracts for the EPA Superfund Program, collectively valued at over $2 billion. Currently, we are the prime contractor for EPA’s Superfund Technical Assessment and Response Team (START) program in 6 of the 10 EPA regions—Regions 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, and 9. The services we typically perform under these contracts include response activities (both on-site emergency response and oversight of removals), preparedness and prevention, assessment and inspection activities, training, data management, and other technical support activities.


Weston brings EPA the nationwide proven ability to support the unexpected. In 2017, we have supported our client responding concurrently to multiple hurricanes: Harvey, Irma, and Maria as well as fires in California. In 2001, we led a team of responders performing sampling efforts for the World Trade Center catastrophe, as well as performing decontamination evaluations for the Capitol Hill anthrax situation. In 2003, we mobilized to quickly lead the Columbia Space Shuttle material collection search. In 2010, we led the multimedia sampling and analysis efforts associated with the Deepwater Horizon off-shore oil rig explosion and the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history in Marshall, Michigan. Additionally, we have led a wide variety of environmental activities for some of the largest floods ever experienced in the U.S, such as Tropical Storm Alison, Hurricane Katrina, and Superstorm Sandy. The common element across all of these projects was that although each scenario was unchartered territory, our team quickly adapted previously developed knowledge, procedures, and technology to successfully meet the unique needs of each unexpected, first-of-a-kind event.

Weston has executed over 7,000 projects for EPA since 2005, including sites with various types of biological, radiological, and chemical concerns. With our highly trained and experienced set of responders, our tested IT/geographic information system (GIS)/data collection and management tools, and our proven management processes, we are extremely confident that Weston will be able to effectively and efficiently meet the future needs of our valued EPA client.

QUALITY: Rating: Exceptional – “Weston’s performance in this area was exceptional. Weston was assigned a wide variety of projects often requiring the mobilization and utilization of considerable personnel, equipment, and subcontracted services and the need for Weston’s Core Readiness Team (CRT) to receive technical direction from approximately thirty different Contracting Officer Representatives (CORs). Assigned projects varied greatly in nature, complexity and level of effort required for performance. Conduct of field support activities, including emergency response support, was exceptional.”
