Ecology & Environment has received an extension of a key regional contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that could generate $50.4 million in revenues for the Lancaster-based environmental services firm over the next seven years.

The new contract essentially is an extension of an earlier agreement with the EPA to provide Superfund technical assistance and response teams on projects in Alaska, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

E&E for years has provided technical support for emergency response and removal services, along with site assessment, training, data management and other administrative services.

The latest contract includes a three-year base period, with a pair of two-year options that could stretch the agreement to a total of seven years. The contract also includes provisions that could increase E&E’s workload by as much as 50 percent in the event of a catastrophic event, the company said Wednesday.
