Located along the Columbia River, INTERA’s Richland office staff of geoscientists and engineers specialize in supporting the environmental restoration of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Site, as well as geology and well-drilling support to commercial clients.
Richland is part of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the state of Washington. Located in southeast Washington, the Tri-Cities area is home to the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and is in close proximity to the U.S. Department of Energy's Hanford Site and the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (also known as LIGO).
The Tri-Cities area is situated at the confluence of the Columbia, Snake and Yakima Rivers. These rivers are central to the area’s agricultural production and are an important component to the variety of recreational activities available in the region. With a pleasant shrub-steppe climate typified by warm summers and moderate winter temperatures, this region has a markedly different weather pattern than locations on the coastal side of the Cascade Mountains, and more moderate seasons than many other inland locations. The combination of the rich volcanic soil and the average of 300 days of sunshine each year make this region especially suitable for growing wine grapes. There are over 200 wineries within a 50-mile radius of the Tri-Cities.
