Locus awarded multi-phase Superfund project with ADEQ

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., 10 May 2004  — Locus Technologies has been awarded a multi-phase project to support the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) at the West Central Phoenix, North Canal State Superfund site. The project, which is valued at nearly $300,000, will allow Locus to provide consulting support to the ADEQ for both a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) and Early Response Action (ERA) services.

Locus is pleased to build on its established and in-depth experience at Superfund sites in the west and its extensive resume with chlorinated hydrocarbon investigation and remediation programs.

“Locus staff in Phoenix have extensive prior experience with ADEQ WQARF projects. That experience, coupled with Locus’ outstanding reputation at EPA Region 9 sites, makes for a powerful combination in supporting the ADEQ with this valued public service project,” says Mark Bittner, Locus Regional Director and WCP Project Manager.

Neno Duplancic, President and CEO of Locus, adds “Locus is also providing ADEQ with database management services as an integral part of our RI/FS program. We are excited to provide ADEQ with hands-on exposure to our Environmental Information Management (EIM™) web-based data management software. EIM will allow ADEQ to easily track current and historic groundwater data trends, increasing department efficiency and saving costs.”
