TRC Continues Long Term Support of EPA Research Lab

Company Supports Experiments to Test Impacts of Air Pollution on Humans

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - For nearly 35 years, TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) has supported the management, operation, and maintenance of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Health and Environmental Effects Research Lab in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Most recently, TRC was awarded a new $11 million, five-year contract.

The Lab conducts scientific research, including clinical and laboratory studies, to help the EPA understand the effects of air pollutants on human health. The Lab's research informs EPA's standard setting process for air and water pollution, as well as pesticide control.

"TRC has consistently delivered outstanding services that sustain the success of our activities at the Lab," said Steve Jackson, EPA Project Officer. "From the development of new research systems to the operational support of our staff, TRC's achievements continue to deliver excellent results we continue to rely on."

TRC supports the studies conducted at the Lab by providing management, engineering, and technical support services for the experiments performed by the EPA and visiting staff. TRC's team of scientists, engineers, and technicians oversee day-to-day operations, maintenance, and modification of the environmental chambers and complex support systems used to deliver precise quantities of gases, or particulates to human test subjects. TRC also provides research reports and quality assurance/control to assist the EPA in its leadership of advancing human-based scientifically sound research approaches to better understand the exposure, deposition, and biological impacts of pollutants directly in exposed populations.
