Ken Watson, Ph.D. Vice President / Principal Hydrologist
- Ph.D., Soil Physics, University of Kentucky - M.S., Soil Physics, University of Kentucky - B.S., Soil Science, University of Florida
Dr. Watson’s wide range of expertise includes active participation in studies, review committees and developing modeling strategies. His studies include the transport of trace contaminants from shallow land waste disposal sites, biodegradation of TCE, and solidification techniques. His various review committees often deal with hazardous waste disposal. In addition to the studies and reviews, he has developed modeling strategies for determining solute travel times to water supply wells and stochastic modeling techniques for water flow and solute transport problems. His skills also encompass the application of complex numerical transport models to hazardous waste areas.
Fred Seguiti, P.G. Vice President / Principal Hydrogeologist
- B.S., Geology, Allegheny College, PA
Mr. Seguiti manages multiple teams and associated projects concerning site assessment and remediation throughout the country involving innovative and conventional techniques during both site assessment and remediation including: soil gas surveys, environmental media sampling using direct push technology coupled with field analyses for real time site assessment, remediation through natural attenuation and monitoring approaches, risk assessment, intensive limited scope and short-term source removals, multiple well, recovery trench and horizontal well schemes for capturing impacted groundwater, dual-phase extraction wells, insitu air sparging, soil vacuum extraction, and enhanced anaerobic biodegradation (bioaugmentation). He has also managed multiple Brownfields assessment grants for various municipalities.
Cindy Lee Westergard Senior Chemist
- MBA., Vanderbilt University - B.A., Chemistry, Florida State University
Ms. Westergard’s performance in quality assurance extends longer than 20 years and her success in the environmental field for more than 25 years. She is responsible for ensuring that the collection and analysis of environmental samples adhere to proper analytical procedures and program requirements. Her expertise includes validation of analytical data and generation of comprehensive data validation reports. Add to this list database design, data analysis and management. Rounding out her vast skill set involves the auditing of environmental laboratories and negotiation of laboratory contracts.
Joel Balmat Senior Technical Consultant
- M.S., Environmental Science/Chemistry, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ - B.S., Environmental Science/Chemistry (cum laude), Rutgers University - Post-grad courses and workshops in project management, toxicology, health & safety, and remediation technologies
Mr. Balmat manages and executes a variety of environmental projects, which often include challenging technical and legal issues. He has over 20 years of progressive experience as an environmental manager and consultant with broad knowledge of environmental project management, site restoration, permitting, and regulatory compliance. On a ground-breaking hazardous waste cleanup project, Mr. Balmat received awards from the U.S. EPA for using creative methods and regulatory flexibility in accomplishing site cleanup goals.
