Description

EPA occupies space in six buildings on or near the University of Nevada-Las Vegas campus. The facilities are occupied by two EPA laboratories operated by the Office of Research and Development (ORD) and the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR).

The National Exposure Research Laboratory (ORD). The Environmental Sciences Division of this laboratory is located on campus. Its mission is to evaluate and assess exposure to environmental hazards and to develop methods to monitor and measure such hazards.

Radiation and Indoor Environments National Laboratory (OAR). This laboratory provides technical support for the development and implementation of policy, guidance, programs, and regulations concerning radiation, indoor air quality, and emergency response. The laboratory facilities consist of offices, traditional "wet" laboratories, and specialized space for indoor air laboratories, shops, and environmental chambers. In addition, the laboratory operates a fleet of mobile laboratories and monitoring vehicles that are based at an off-campus facility.
