Matthew Wissler is a Senior Principal Hydrogeologist with more than 19 years of experience focused on the evaluation and permitting of water resources, hydrogeologic investigations relating to resource and waste permitting, groundwater modeling of complex aquifer systems, contaminated site assessment and remediation, and vapor intrusion assessment and mitigation.
Matt uses project management and technical expertise to develop advocacy strategies in support of public, private and federal sector clients in a number of industries including power and utilities, waste management, chemical manufacturing, fertilizer production, oil and gas, food and beverage, engine manufacturing, and aerospace. He assist clients with permitting and environmental liability, including litigation support for a variety of industries.
Mats water resources background includes the design and implementation of groundwater geochemical tracer studies, aquifer performance testing programs, exploratory drilling programs, geophysical evaluations, well head protection studies, and production well drilling programs. He applies these technical hydrogeological skills and his regulatory knowledge to support water use permitting projects and other large-scale permitting projects including solid waste landfills including an array of associated water quality compliance issues.
As a consultant, Matt conducts site investigations for locations contaminated by chlorinated solvents, metals, inorganics, and radionuclides with studies focusing on groundwater, soil, and soil vapor. Matt also has extensive applied experience with environmental remediation technologies including air sparge, soil vapor extraction, multi-phase extraction, biostimulation and bioaugmentation, zero valent iron emulsion, optimized pump and treat, and phytoremediation. He was awarded the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) Group Achievement Award for his contributions during the implementation of a chlorinated solvent remedial pilot test.
In addition to his consulting practice, he has served as a guest graduate instructor at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida and currently serves as Chairman of the University of South Florida Geology Alumni Society. Matt actively presents on water resources and site assessment topics at technical conferences in the United States. He is active in several professional societies including the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), Tampa Bay Association of Environmental Professionals (TBAEP), American Water Resources Association (AWRA), and is a board member with the Florida Association for Water Quality Control (FAWQC).
