Angela “Angie” Persico’s professional experience has focused in the areas of environmental assessment and investigation, human health and ecological risk assessment, environmental permitting and compliance, and evaluation of water resources. Her expertise has been applied to projects involving environmental permitting, permit compliance, corrective actions, decommissioning and closure, and alternate concentration limits for groundwater at former and current uranium mine and mill sites. Using the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Statistical Analysis of Groundwater Monitoring Data at RCRA Facilities – Unified Guidance, Angie conducts statistical analyses of groundwater chemistry data to characterize background/baseline conditions, develops groundwater compliance limits, and assesses source and extent of potential contamination. While much of her experience has been gained at mine and mill sites, Angie has also completed investigation activities at tribal and federal facility sites, petroleum facilities, and other manufacturing plants, involving a wide range of soil and groundwater contaminants including metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, nitrates, chlorides, and radionuclides. Angie’s assessment and investigation experience also includes performing preliminary assessments/site inspections, remedial investigations/feasibility studies, and engineering evaluations/cost analysis under the CERCLA as well as conducting environmental assessments and preparing categorical exclusions in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Her work has included clients in the energy sector, including oil and gas and mining; municipalities; and federal and tribal governments. She has conducted human health and ecological risk assessments for abandoned mine sites, FUDS, uranium mine sites as part of the Alternative Concentration Limits application process, and a national preserve. Angie also has experience in managing both project-specific and corporate health and safety programs.
