Former Refinery, Santa Fe Springs, CA. Project manager and design engineer for the characterization, remedial design, and redevelopment of a former 55-acre refinery. Off-site groundwater plume of free-phase petroleum extended more than a mile away. Project involved insurance-funded cleanup, property sale, CLRRA agreements for redevelopment protection, and methane mitigation designs. RWQCB lead agency.
K-8 School Remediation/Construction, Irvine, CA. Project manager and design engineer for the installation of a vapor mitigation system installed during the construction of a new 200,000-sq-ft school building. Responsibilities included design, creating of specifications and construction documents, construction management, and regulatory negotiations. DTSC/DSA lead agencies.
Former Copier Refurbishment Facility, Irvine, CA. Project manager and design engineer for RCRA corrective action site work that included large-scale soil excavation, shallow groundwater remediation via large-diameter auger soil mixing, and mixed-use redevelopment. Project required extensive interaction with DTSC, non-RP property owner, RWQCB, and City of Irvine. CEQA negative declaration required, DTSC lead agency.
Dry Cleaners, Hollywood, CA. Project manager and design engineer for in-situ chemical reduction and bioremediation remediation of PCE-impacted groundwater. Work involved the use of custom-designed ISCR products, injection of engineered bacteria, and carbohydrate electron donor solutions to address a mile-long plume of impacted groundwater. RWQCB lead agency.
Commercial Warehousing Campus, Gardena, CA. Retained as the remediation design expert to provide support on the cleanup and cost allocation of a former manufacturing facility. Responsibilities included an expert opinion report defending the necessity and cost of cleanup. Both regulatory compliance and human health risk were drivers for completing the work.
