Dr. Peter Zeeb, Ph.D., P.G., LSP, is a principal hydrogeologist based in Massachusetts. He has directed investigation and remediation strategy at some of the most challenging sites in the country, including CERCLA-regulated sites in New England and the Midwest, as well as numerous state-regulated sites.
Specializing in site investigations, modeling, pilot tests, remedial strategy development/alternatives analyses, and full-scale remedy design for more than 20 years, Dr. Zeeb serves as the technical lead for hydrogeological, chemical fate and transport, and monitored natural attenuation evaluations on project teams. Based on his experience and qualifications, he is often retained as a consulting or testifying expert for litigation matters. Among his clients are AstraZeneca, DuPont, Invensys, Shell, Merck, and others.
Dr. Zeeb has helped advance the state of the practice through authorship of guidance documents on protocols for natural attenuation demonstrations focusing on groundwater impacted by chlorinated solvents and the gasoline additive MTBE. He has also served as a steering committee member on the Remediation Technology Development Forum (RTDF) Source Area BioRemediation (SABRe) project, an applied research and development project located in central England designed to examine the efficacy of accelerated anaerobic bioremediation as an alternative treatment for source areas contaminated with dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs), particularly trichloroethylene (TCE).
In addition to his work on guidance documents for natural attenuation demonstrations, Dr. Zeeb has authored more than 25 publications on groundwater and soil remediation, groundwater fate and transport, and vapor intrusion. Among these is his doctoral dissertation on the effects of small-scale subsurface features on groundwater flow and transport through wetlands and the relationship of wetland systems to glacial aquifers. As part of this work, Dr. Zeeb conducted a detailed evaluation of the geochemistry and fate and transport of arsenic released from tannery wastes in the watershed.
