Geospatial Portals

EVS leverages commercial and open-source standards and software to develop rich, interactive web-based portals to geospatial datasets and accompanying models.

Glen Canyon LTEMP EIS

Glen Canyon Dam, a 1,300-MW water-storage and hydroelectric facility is located on the Colorado River upstream of the Grand Canyon. EVS is evaluating the effects of dam operations on the Colorado River.

Multi-Functional Landscapes

EVS is demonstrating the feasibility of integrating perennial biomass crops into agricultural landscapes to produce bioenergy feedstock and commodity crops while providing multiple ecosystem services.

NORM Waste Management

EVS supports sustainable approaches to manage and regulate petroleum industry wastes that contain elevated concentrations of NORM by evaluating the potential risks and costs associated with these wastes.

Risk Assessment of Federal Sites

EVS supports federal agencies in evaluation and remediation of sites that could pose unacceptable ecological risks from chemical and/or radiological contaminants, as well as in policy and guidance development and in training.
