Geosyntec Team to Present During International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy and Air March 19-22

Members of the Geosyntec team are attendees of the 22nd Annual International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy and Air and the Association of Environmental Health and Sciences (AEHS) Meeting , under way through March 22 in San Diego.

Geosyntec's San Diego office is a sponsor for this annual gathering of environmental professionals and the environmental science community, which facilitates the exchange of information of technological advances, new scientific achievements, and the effectiveness of standing environmental regulation programs. The strong and diverse technical program is customized each year to meet the changing needs of the environmental field.

Principal Sam Williams (San Diego) is a member of the AEHS Scientific Advisory Board and this year is the moderator for two event sessions, one focusing on site assessment/field sampling and the other on bioremediation. Sam will also give a presentation on permitting remediation systems.
