Geosyntec Consultants Announces Scott Drew Among New Jersey's First Licensed Site Remediation Professionals
PRINCETON, NJ — Geosyntec Consultants is pleased to announce that Scott Drew has received his designation as a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) in New Jersey. With this designation, Scott joins an elite group of environmental professionals with expanded authorities and responsibilities in the remediation of sites contaminated by past disposal practices.
In 2009, the New Jersey Legislature passed the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) to help address the backlog of more than 19,000 sites in the NJDEP Site Remediation Program. The SRRA established the LSRP program, modeled on successful programs in Massachusetts and Connecticut, which charges the licensed individuals with the responsibility of managing environmental investigation and cleanup. Scott was a member of the LSP Consultants Coalition, a group that reviewed and commented on the legislation.
Scott, a Geosyntec Associate, has over 30 years of experience in site investigation, remediation, environmental technology, and chemistry. His recent project work includes the development of strategies for bioaugmentation in fractured rock, assessment and remediation of groundwater in karst geology, and vapor intrusion studies. During his career, Scott has assisted numerous clients, including electric power utilities, petrochemical and manufacturing companies, and Federal Government Agencies. He has worked on such challenges as the remediation of manufactured gas plant wastes, ammonium perchlorate, and RDX, applying both in situ and reactor-based treatment technologies.
Scott is based in Geosyntec's Princeton, NJ, office, which he helped found in 2002. He earned his BS in environmental sciences from the University of Massachusetts and completed graduate studies in chemistry at Northeastern University.
