Peter Zeeb is a Senior Principal Hydrogeologist based in Massachusetts with more than 20 years of experience focused on 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, Peter 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, as well as many others.
As a consultant, Peter has written 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, Peter conducted a detailed evaluation of the geochemistry and fate and transport of arsenic released from tannery wastes in the watershed.
To advance the state of the practice, Peter continues to write 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).
