SPRINGFIELD, Va., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VSR) announced today that it has been awarded two comprehensive Municipal Stormwater (MS4) permit compliance contracts, each expected to exceed $1M over one base year and up to five option years. For Arlington County, Virginia, Versar will provide monitoring, modeling, mapping, design, inspection, program development and implementation, data collection, analysis, management, and other services to meet the requirements of the County's MS4 permit.

For Anne Arundel County, Maryland, Versar and their subcontractor Limno Tech will be providing expert consultant support including: project coordination, illicit discharge detection and elimination, assessment of controls, and annual reporting. This is the fourth contract Versar has won as a prime contractor or subcontractor with Anne Arundel, but the first to support MS4 compliance needs across the County.
Jeff Moran, Versar's Sr. Vice President of Environmental Services said, "With these awards, Versar adds a fourth and fifth comprehensive, countywide MS4 permit compliance contract, similar to our contracts with Frederick, Harford, and Howard Counties, Maryland. Versar has also provided stormwater compliance and watershed planning support to Baltimore, Carroll, and Montgomery Counties in Maryland and in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in Virginia.
