ABSTRACT:
Today, the Service's Environmental Contaminants Program includes contaminants specialists stationed at more than 75 locations around the country.

They specialize in detecting toxic chemicals; addressing their effects; preventing harm to fish, wildlife, and their habitats; and removing toxic chemicals and restoring habitat when prevention is not possible.
