Geosyntec Practitioners to Present on Site Remediation at DCHWS 2020 Virtual Symposium

Ron Gestler (California), Chuck Whisman, P.E. (Pennsylvania), and Kirk Craig, P.E., PEE (Arizona) will present on site remediation at the Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites (DCHWS) Virtual Symposium on October 26-28, 2020.

Ron Gestler is a Senior Scientist based in California with 18 years of professional experience in remediation services. He has participated at every level in the design, implementation, operation, maintenance, and monitoring for remediation systems using a variety of technologies including phytoremediation, bioremediation, in situ chemical reduction and oxidation, and others.  He has successfully implemented and operated large-scale, multi-year remediation programs at sites in the United States and Canada to address a number of environmental pollutants.

Chuck Whisman, is a Senior Principal Engineer based in Pennsylvania with more than 26 years of professional experience focused in the areas of soil and groundwater assessment/remediation, system optimization, compliance, due diligence, integrity and information management, environmental management systems, planning and permitting, regulatory framework development, and site development.

Kirk Craig is a Senior Principal Environmental Engineer based in Arizona with more than 25 years of experience focused on the professional engineering and environmental fields. His primary expertise is in the characterization and remediation of impacted soil, soil gas and groundwater at industrial and commercial properties. His broad technical expertise, regulatory compliance knowledge, and ability to relate to clients enable him to effectively meet client needs and provide regulatory agencies with innovative, cost-effective solutions.

DCHWS is a collaborative effort between the Denver Metro Post and the Philadelphia Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). The applications of engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites continue to evolve rapidly. DCHWS's goal is to facilitate an interactive engagement between professionals from government and the private sector related to relevant and topical issues affecting our field.

SAME builds leaders and leads collaboration among government and industry to develop multi-disciplined solutions to national security infrastructure challenges. With a National Office in Alexandria, Va., and more than 100 Posts and Field Chapters around the world, SAME unites public and private sector individuals and organizations from across the architecture, engineering, construction, environmental and facility management, cyber security, and contracting and acquisition disciplines.
