Cindy Bartlett is a principal geologist based in Oregon with more than 20 years of experience in contaminated site assessment and cleanup. She specializes in leading complex multimedia field investigations. Ms. Bartlett co-manages Geosyntec’s Portland office and is one of the firm’s PFAS practice leaders in the Pacific Northwest.

Ms. Bartlett has led some of the most complex contaminated site investigation and remediation efforts in the Pacific Northwest. She has designed, planned, supervised, and conducted field investigations for soil, sediment, and groundwater impacts from chlorinated solvents, metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, semivolatiles, herbicides, pesticides, and PFAS. This includes numerous projects for private companies, law firms, and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Washington State Department of Ecology, and United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

For example, Ms. Bartlett has led groundwater remediation optimization efforts for Troutdale Sandstone Aquifer for a confidential manufacturing client since 2013. The site has been actively working on removing trichloroethene (TCE) and its by-products from two aquifers since the late 1990s. The shallow aquifer, Troutdale Gravel Aquifer, was successfully treated and closed in 2015. Currently, Ms. Bartlett is focusing on the deeper aquifer, the Troutdale Sandstone Aquifer, where the TCE plume commingled with another TCE plume off-site. In addition to operation and maintenance of extraction wells and a soil vapor extraction system, and a large groundwater monitoring network, she has led agency negotiations and targeted investigations in a recalcitrant area. Remedy optimization evaluations are ongoing.

Ms. Bartlett is also working with the City of Issaquah, Washington, in its, effort to better understand PFAS impacts on its drinking water wells and groundwater supply within the Lower Issaquah Valley aquifer system. This has included updating their Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas (CARA) and wellhead protection areas, and oversight of well installations, aquifer testing, and groundwater modeling. She supports the City through multi-party collaboration including the regulatory agency, attorneys, and another party and their consultants.
