Rockville, Md. – Safe drinking water is a foundational building block in public health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water has awarded Abt Associates a five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement with a $4.9 million ceiling to support efforts to protect drinking water quality. Under the contract, Abt will support a long-term program documenting water treatment effectiveness and preparing cost models that EPA will use to estimate the costs of establishing and achieving drinking water quality standards for utilities and their customers.
“This new contract continues Abt’s long history of providing technical support for EPA’s regulatory actions,” said Paul Anninos, vice president, Environment and Natural Resources, "and enables us to significantly advance our efforts to protect the public’s health.”
