The Region 10 Laboratory provides physical, chemical, biological and microbiological analyses of air, soil, sediments, water tissue, and unknown chemicals. It measures contaminants and pollution effects in a variety of media in support of criminal enforcement, civil enforcement, site assessment, remedial investigation, ecosystem monitoring and public health initiatives. It also serves as a technical reference laboratory with the capability of providing consultation and interpretation of data in areas such as organic and inorganic chemistry, metals chemistry, and environmental microbiology. Construction of a new wing was completed in May 2003.
