Specialty areas: Wellfield design and evaluation, remedial action design, surface water / groundwater interaction studies, and groundwater quality assessment
Leslie has over 25 years of diverse experience in hydrogeology. Much of her work at M&A has focused on managing large-scale, multi-disciplinary projects — including many that incorporate groundwater models — and providing technical support for legal negotiations and proceedings. She has helped clients integrate traditional and innovative remedial strategies at contaminated sites. At one Superfund site, she was part of a technical team that designed and implemented pilot studies using in-situ oxidation methods to remediate VOCs at several discrete source areas. Leslie also specializes in coordinating the full spectrum of water resources and permitting services for clients in the power sector, including both traditional coal and gas-fired plants and utility-scale solar thermal facilities. She joined M&A in 1989 after stints with Pima County Wastewater and the City of Tucson Water Department.
Leslie served as project manager for the Cholla Power Plant Wellfield Replacement / Expansion Project, which received this APS plant’s 2008 Contractor of the Year award. In addition to her project roles, Leslie also serves as M&A’s marketing coordinator.
