Bruce Marvin, P.E.

Bruce Marvin is a Senior Principal Environmental Engineer based in California with more than 15 years of consulting experience focused on remediation strategy development, technology selection, engineering process design, and quality assurance procedures. His clients include private and governmental entities in the United States, Japan, Canada, and Australia.

Internationally recognized for his in situ remediation expertise, Bruce has established industry best practices for in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO). He has performed numerous pioneering projects involving ozone, permanganate, and persulfate. He negotiated work plans and permits for early applications of ISCO in several regions of California and has successfully implemented projects in numerous jurisdictions. His in situ remediation experience includes direct project work involving enhanced biological treatment, monitored natural attenuation, chemical reduction, and thermal treatment technologies. In addition, Bruce has design and operation experience with soil vapor extraction, air and bio-sparging, bioreactors, air strippers, carbon adsorption, pumping systems and controls.

Through the development of cost-effective forecasting and resource allocation alternatives, Bruce takes advantage of the latest proven technologies to advance the interests of his clients. For example, at a former manufacturing facility, he developed an integrated DNAPL source zone strategy that integrated the technical and non-technical requirements with stakeholder concerns and off-site property issues, managing the implementation of the off-site remediation (ISCO) in a highly urbanized area. Bruce developed specifications and mentored a team through permitting with local building and fire department officials, and trained thirty project personnel in safe work procedures and risk management controls.

To advance the state of the practice, Bruce is a leader in the development and implementation of quality and safety programs tailored to organizational and project needs. For example, as part of a design-build installation of an in situ biological permeable reactive carrier, he prepared an Activity Hazard Analyses for construction and drilling valued at more than $8 million, and developed a multi-faceted behavioral-based field safety program that resulted in over 25,000 feet of drilling without an incident, injury or accident. Through his unique combination of hands-on experience, strategic perspective, and leading edge technology applications, he provides clients with successful results that achieve best in class performance.
