for control and abatement of petroleum hydrocarbons at petroleum
storage and conveyance facilities, including refineries,
bulk storage terminals and service stations in California,
Kansas, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma,
North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Developed innovative concepts
to optimize both assessment and remediation efforts.
Developed quick and cost effective assessment techniques
for the delineation of contaminant plumes. Developed unique
assessment techniques including fingerprinting and spatial
and temporal analysis to identify multiple sources of contamination.
Conducted microcosm tests to assess the biodegradation potential
of soil and ground water contaminated with petroleum and
Developed innovative methods, such as the NET (non-aqueous
phase liquid extraction technique) process - utilizing belt
skimmers and mop systems - for the recovery of gasoline and
fuel oil (grades 2 through 6) from small diameter (2-inch)
to large diameter (24-inch) wells. Developed interim remedial
methods for recovery of phase-separated hydrocarbons (PSH).
Optimized recovery of PSH by redesigning existing remediation
systems originally designed by other consulting firms. Recovered
PSH using single pump, dual pump, skimmer pumps, and vapor
recovery systems. Successfully negotiated and implemented
in-situ biodegradation of LNAPL and DNAPL constituents at
sites owned by large utility and industrial facilities.
