James “Jim” Joseph’s environmental consulting experience has focused primarily on site characterization, groundwater and soil remediation, and waste disposal (solid, special, and hazardous). His specific fields of expertise include municipal sewage sludge disposal, landfill profiling, landfill gas abatement design, remediation design, mining abatement, and other environmental compliance-related services. He has managed various types of projects for clients including municipal, state, and federal government and private industry. He has performed subsurface site characterization of contaminated soil and groundwater, compliance groundwater sampling, soil gas surveying, aquifer testing, and modeling of contaminant distribution. In conjunction with these activities, Jim has prepared work plans, health and safety plans, remediation plans, sampling and analysis plans, quality assurance project plans, spill prevention plans, storm water pollution prevention plans, landfill management plans, and compliance reports. Jim’s project experience includes managing tasks from the initial investigation through remediation and site closure. He has worked a variety of site contaminants including chlorinated solvents, petroleum products, radioactive materials, metals, and nitrate and nitrites. Jim’s specific engineering experience includes designing and operating in-situ remediation systems including groundwater extraction and treatment, soil vapor extraction (SVE), air sparging/SVE, enhanced bioremediation, dual-phase extraction, surfactant-enhanced aquifer remediation, vacuum-enhanced recovery of light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL), landfill gas collection and destruction, and bioremediation using electron donor injection.
