One of the contractors testing air quality at the air in East Palestine railroad catastrophe is contractor Tetra Tech Inc. This company is being sued by the US Department of Justice along with Tetra Tech health and safety whistleblowers in San Francisco for retaliation after exposing massive fraud. After the Federal government spent $1 billion they found that Tetra Tech had manipulated and falsified the testing on the radioactive dump site. Now the EPA has allowed this company to be involved in testing at East Palestine. Investigative journalist Greg Schwartz talks about the cover-up by the EPA and Region 5 in Ohio and how this is connected to the actions of Tetra Tech the San Francisco Bay Area.

Over $1 billion of US government funds were spent on cleaning up the Hunters Point ship yard and Treasure Island which are contaminated radioactive dump sites. There was massive fraud by Tetra Tech and two managers went to Federal prison. They also retaliated against workers who exposed the fraud. Now the Department of Justice is joining the suit against Tetra Tech and yet the EPA has hired them and Test America at East Palestine to do air testing. According to Test America whistleblower Michael Madry Test American falsified their test results at Hunters Point shipyard. He as well was terminated by Test America for being a health and safety whistleblower
