Specialty areas: Vadose zone characterization, environmental assessment and remediation, modeling, artificial recharge investigations
Jeff’s background in soil science has been indispensable to a wide array of environmental assessments, recharge feasibility investigations, and mine tailings studies since he joined M&A in 1988. His expertise includes evaluating the physical and hydraulic properties of soils using a range of field instrumentation and testing techniques. In addition to vadose zone characterization programs, he has designed and implemented soil vapor monitoring systems to evaluate contaminant distributions and provide data for optimizing remediation strategies. He has also modeled vadose zone conditions to project impacts to groundwater. Jeff has worked on several Superfund sites, interfacing with regulators and providing technical support for remediation systems that use soil venting and other innovative technologies. As the technical lead on several groundwater recharge investigations, Jeff has used data from field investigations to support regulatory permitting, facility design, and monitoring of long-term operations.
In 1996 and 1997, he served on ADEQ’s Cleanup Standards / Policy Task Force.
