Geosyntec Consultants announced the promotion of a new group of practitioners to senior roles in the United States and Canada.
Practitioners Promoted to Senior Roles at Geosyntec are:
– Scott Compston, an environmental scientist whose practice focuses on the remediation of contaminated sediments.
He has conducted site investigations at complex upland and sediment sites throughout the country regulated under a variety of state and federal regulatory programs.
Scott has a lead role in planning and implementation for a multi-year remedial investigation and feasibility study at the Berry’s Creek Study Area mega-site in New Jersey.
As part of the Berry’s Creek team, he led the development of novel equipment and methods used to sample sediment and water in extremely challenging environments.
– Grant Scholes, P.Eng., an environmental engineer whose practice focuses on the remediation of chlorinated solvents.
He has designed zero valent iron permeable reactive barriers, managed and monitored the operations of several multi-phase extraction systems, and designed and self-built a groundwater bioremediation recirculation system for treatment of trichloroethylene (TCE) in fractured bedrock.
Grant also performs hydraulic testing and groundwater sampling at a number of sites.
He is among the engineers leading the development Self-sustaining Treatment for Active Remediation (STAR) technology for Geosyntec. STAR uses smoldering combustion to remediate non-aqueous phase liquid plumes moving through subsurface environments.
– Bill Ware, P.G., a geologist whose practice focuses on the assessment and mitigation of environmental matters associated with surface water and groundwater systems; hydrogeologic evaluations; environmental due diligence; regulatory compliance; and permitting.
Bill supports projects related to the characterization and management of a variety of environmentally impaired lands and surface water bodies; the assessment and remediation of impacted media inland and within coastal areas; contaminated property redevelopment; and the beneficial re-use of impaired properties.
His projects to date address a range of contaminants, including solvents, radionuclides, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pesticides and herbicides, and various metals.
