LOWELL, MA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) today announced that it has been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the New York Power Authority (NYPA) for engineering services during decommissioning of a generating unit at the Charles Poletti Power Project in Astoria, NY. The Power Authority ceased operations at the more than three-decade-old plant in January 2010. Under a 2002 agreement, The Power Authority committed to construct a state-of-the-art clean-generating unit at the same site in Astoria, which became operational in December 2005.

"TRC is pleased to support NYPA in the decommissioning of the retired Poletti generating unit," said Chris Vincze, TRC's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This project is an example of services provided under our RE Power™ initiative, designed to service the comprehensive needs of power plant operators."

Under the contract, TRC will provide design, engineering, planning and construction management services, including pre-demolition site investigation; design of construction documents for the future demolition project; recommendations to effectively implement the work; and recommendations of action for existing plant auxiliary buildings that are no longer required.

You can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as "may," "expects," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," or other words of similar import. You should consider statements that contain these words carefully because they discuss TRC's future expectations, contain projections of the Company's future results of operations or of its financial condition, or state other "forward-looking" information. TRC believes that it is important to communicate its future expectations to its investors. However, there may be events in the future that the Company is not able to accurately predict or control and that may cause its actual results to differ materially from the expectations described in its forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that all forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those discussed as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to, the availability and adequacy of insurance; the uncertainty of our operational and growth strategies; circumstances which could create large cash outflows, such as contract losses, litigation, uncollectible receivables and income tax assessments, including potential payments related to TRC's ongoing IRS audit, if not resolved successfully; regulatory uncertainty; the availability of funding for government projects; the level of demand for TRC's services; product acceptance; industry-wide competitive factors; the ability to continue to attract and retain highly skilled and qualified personnel; and general political or economic conditions. Furthermore, market trends are subject to changes, which could adversely affect future results.
