CONCORD, MA, July 6, 2006 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
EarthSoft, Inc. today announces a collaborative development and marketing deal with H2A Environmental of Southlake Texas to integrate EQuIS and the Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) Commander software.

H2A’s TRRP Commander is a powerful, database-driven software tool that automates TRRP calculations and Affected Property Assessment Report (APAR) reports. Commander allows the user to run multiple ‘what if’ scenarios to pin down the site’s optimal clean-up levels and minimize site clean-up costs. With TRRP Commander, risk assessment and APAR costs can be reduced by 30 to 60 percent, while also improving the technical quality of the work.

EarthSoft and H2A already have many mutual clients in Texas including Shell Oil and others.

TRRP Commander begins by summarizing the laboratory analytical data gathered by and stored in EQuIS. From site-specific characteristics in EQuIS, such as fraction organic carbon (foc), soil porosity and depth to groundwater, TRRP Commander automatically calculates Protective Concentration Levels (PCLs) for each chemical at a site.

Then, Commander automatically compares the summary lab data to the calculated PCLs to determine if remediation is required and, if so, ‘how clean is clean’ (the Critical PCLs for each medium). By changing user input, you can answer ‘what if’ questions.

TRRP Commander will determine a variable’s effect on clean-up levels without deleting your original entries. TRRP Commander automatically creates the specific tables required in APAR reports, in the exact format required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

EarthSoft CEO Mitch Beard said, “We are pleased to introduce TRRP Commander to our Texas clients and look forward to expanding this new EQuIS module to support other states’ risk assessment guidelines.”

H2A co-founder Jim Mosley commented, “The integration of TRRP Commander and EQuIS offers both a powerful relational database and a powerful risk assessment decision support tool – and our clients will benefit from this new combination.”
