Jamie deLemos is a Senior Principal Geochemist based in Massachusetts with more than 10 years of experience focused on soil and aqueous geochemistry and forensics, with particular expertise in the occurrence, transport, and fate of metals and radionuclides in the environment, including complex mixtures. She has considerable experience in evaluating sites with challenging contaminants of questionable origin, such as arsenic, uranium, and radium under DOE, CERCLA, state led, and voluntary cleanup programs.
Jamie has led complex investigations across multiple client sectors including mining and smelting, chemical and fertilizer manufacturing, petroleum and petrochemical, and industrial gases. Her expertise and application of creative and strategic approaches, as well as her advocacy on the behalf of her clients with the regulatory agencies, have resulted in long-term capital cost savings for her clients. She also serves as a consulting expert for litigation projects associated with the mobilization, attenuation, and remediation of metals and radionuclides. She works closely with her clients to evaluate site history and contaminant forensics to establish nexus and conveyance with respect to liability valuation, cost recovery, and cost allocation.
Jamie continues to advance the state-of-the-practice by authoring and co-authoring white papers and peer-reviewed technical publications relative to the mobilization of naturally-occurring contaminants as well as innovative remedial technologies. She has evaluated the transport of uranium from historical mine waste in areas belonging to the Navajo Nation as part of her research and, she was the first to publish a study describing the mobilization of naturally-occurring arsenic resulting from groundwater mixing and biodegradation of landfill organic waste.
