J. Andrew Montgomery, P.E., is a principal engineer based in Georgia with more than 17 years of environmental consulting experience. His practice focuses on developing regulatory and risk-based strategies to achieve cost-effective site closure and redevelopment of properties impacted with chlorinated solvents, metals, and petroleum hydrocarbons. In addition, Andrew works with Fortune 500 companies to develop and implement environmental management programs.
During the past decade, Andrew has managed and performed remedial site and hydrogeologic investigations, risk assessments, and remedial designs for 10 sites regulated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in addition to another 12 sites regulated under the Recovery Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and more than 15 sites under various state regulations. Remedial technologies evaluated or implemented under his direction include monitored natural attenuation, bioaugmentation, air sparging, zero-valent iron, in situ chemical oxidation, and soil vapor extraction. Andrew also has managed several sites under the Georgia Brownfields Program including projects funded via U.S. EPA Brownfields grants. For a rails-to-trails Brownfields projects he developed the first recreational trail user scenarios approved by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division that facilitated site cleanup, property transfer, and beneficial reuse.
Complementing Andrew’s expertise with site assessment is his notable success and experience with environmental due diligence and compliance. Andrew has broad experience performing multimedia compliance audits and preparing Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plans and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans to help his clients meet compliance requirements.
Prior to joining Geosyntec Consultants, Andrew was an engineer at General Motors of Canada, where he developed and implemented new programs and trained plant personnel on how to minimize waste, resulting in substantial cost savings. He is an active member of the Society of Military Engineers and the Georgia Brownfields Association.
