Jeremy Gasser is a Principal Civil Engineer based in Georgia with 10 years of experience as a marine construction contractor and consultant focused in the areas of civil, environmental, and geotechnical engineering.
Jeremy assists utilities, municipalities, and private clients with large, multidisciplinary projects, from project inception through construction. He specializes in managing coal combustion residuals (CCR) and contaminated sediments; providing engineering and construction management at solid waste landfills and during plant decommissioning; designing coastal and dredging projects; and managing construction. Jeremy has led clients through feasibility studies to assess project applicability; conducted numerous pilot studies to present proof of concept; led the design of large, complex civil and geotechnical projects with construction values of $10 to $500 million, provided engineering support and construction quality control (CQA) services, and executed construction management at-risk (CMAR) projects.
Using his background as a contractor, Jeremy provides his clients with effective and constructible design solutions. As part of a team designing the closure of a CCR impoundment, Jeremy was Geosyntec’s project manager and construction manager and was responsible for the design and execution of several pilot studies to provide proof of concept for a closure design. Pilot studies for the project included in situ dewatering of CCR materials, dredging and ex situ dewatering using geotextile tubes, and the use of deep soil mix (DSM). The DSM pilot study was a first-to-field application using DSM technology through CCR materials to construct a geotechnical retaining structure within the CCR pond. In addition to pilot studies, Jeremy has served as the engineer of record for many large civil siteworks projects, Geosyntec’s construction manager for a groundwater extraction CMAR project, and CQA certifying engineer on CCR closure projects.
Jeremy regularly participates in and presents at both the World of Coal Ash (WOCA) and Western Dredging Association (WEDA) conferences. He serves on WEDA’s National Education and Safety Committees
