Building 67 at the Denver Federal Center, home of the TSC.

Reclamation’s Technical Service Center (TSC) provides innovative solutions to water and power resource issues. The TSC consists of approximately 500 scientists and engineers, and operates a world-class materials and hydraulic engineering laboratory.

Our mission is to be Reclamation’s preferred provider of science and engineering services, and to be the preferred employer of engineers and scientists in the U.S.

Although focused on Reclamation’s mission, TSC also provides technical assistance to other Federal agencies through interagency agreements, as well as working with state and private entities through cooperative and technology transfer agreements. Technical assistance and training are also available through agreements with other countries interested in developing their own water resources.

You will find on our Web Site a more complete description of our technical capabilities, as well as a variety of resources in the form of manuals and standards, technical reports, a library of technical presentations, computer software, and training materials. Please contact me or any of our employees if we can be of service.
