GEODESY has worked over 15 years under multiple contracts on the Housatonic River Project. GEODESY was involved in the site investigative process in a wide variety of activities including Site investigations, regulatory agency negotiations, Human Health Risk Assessment, Ecological Risk Assessment, Community and Public Involvement, and Peer Review support.
Geographic Information Manager, 1999 - present. Managed GIS overseeing all aspects of project spatial data for several key EPA contractor user groups, including ecological and human health risk assessors, ecologists, hydrologist, geomorphologists, modelers, remedial design, and construction engineers. Led a team of GIS specialists to ensure all spatial data were collected, analyzed, and presented in the most efficient, accurate means available to support one of the largest environmental assessments undertaken by the USEPA. Efficiency was gained through the development of a robust map request and delivery system over a secure internet connection, cutting the time required to get maps on the table in a remote field office from days to hours and sometimes minutes. Also developed an interactive application used to simulate remediation by calculating Exposure Point Concentration (EPCs) on the fly for comparison with Interim Media Protection Goals (IMPGs) specified as Human Health Risk Targets for a given Exposure Unit. The tool allows for avoidance of sensitive habitats and selective removal of contaminated soil to achieve remedial goals as well as providing estimates of removal volume.
GEODESY is currently managing a 10GB environmental database with 1M+ analytical results from 75,000 locations that links directly to a GIS for mapping and data analysis. This data management system includes all data collected over the past 15 years. New data from GE as well as split sample results are continually added to the system.
