Gregory Roush is a Senior Principal Geologist based in Georgia with more than 30 years of experience focused on directing multidisciplinary projects involving site assessments and corrective actions at industrial facilities found throughout the Southeastern United States.
As a consultant, Greg provides practical, streamlined, and cost-effective regulatory strategies and remediation services to clients in the pulp and paper, wood treatment, pharmaceutical, chemical manufacturing, petroleum storage, and railway industries. He advises clients on permitting requirements for a wide range of project sites regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, and Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments to the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965.
Many of Greg's site investigations and corrective actions for clients involve the implementation of both innovative and traditional investigative and remedial technologies. He has significant experience with environmental site assessments for property transactions, the preparation of permit applications and sludge management plans, and post-closure care for closed solid and hazardous waste landfills. He directs risk management surveys of insured properties and prepares independent remediation cost estimates in support of remediation cost cap insurance policies.
To better assist his clients, Greg has served as the project manager for dozens of Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments (ESAs) at multiple industrial and manufacturing facilities, many on an accelerated schedule. His Phase II investigations have included well installation, soil sampling, PCB wipe samples, and sediment and surface water samples. In some cases, these assessments were at properties to be developed into mixed-used facilities, with remediation planned under that state's Brownfields redevelopment program. He has conducted all Phase I ESAs in accordance with ASTM Standard E1527 and the U.S. EPA's All Appropriate Inquiry.
To advance the state of the practice, Greg prepared a Corrective Action Management Unit permit application for a large, former specialty chemical facility; managed the implementation of a RCRA Corrective Action program at another chemicals manufacturer; managed a corrective action related to the closure of multiple underground hazardous waste storage tanks; and implemented a RCRA Corrective Action program at a coal tar distillation and distribution facility.
