Joel has spent over 13 years in the hydrogeology and environmental consulting fields. He’s developed expertise in groundwater flow and contaminant transport modeling, quantitative analysis of hydrogeologic systems, vadose zone contaminant fate and transport, groundwater monitoring system design, and environmental compliance audits. But his expertise doesn’t stop there; he is also well versed in industrial contaminant site investigations and remediation of chemicals from chlorinated solvents, metals, and PCBs to petroleum hydrocarbons and explosives.
Joel has worked with clients to provide key services such as; performance of groundwater flow and contaminant transport modeling, hydrogeologic investigation and model conceptualization, third party review, and statistical analysis of geologic, and groundwater chemistry data.
Joel believes that shared community spaces- parks, trails, amphitheaters, and gardens- are the glue that binds a community together and facilitates a deeper connection to people and places. In his community, one of Joel’s favorite places to spend time is Meadowlark Community Garden.
