Lane Dorman is a Principal Hydrogeologist based in Florida with more than 12 years of professional experience focused on the assessment and remediation of arsenic, coal combustion residuals (CCR), and chlorinated solvent groundwater plumes.
Lane has helped clients develop and implement site closure strategies throughout the southeastern U.S. for electric power generation facilities, private industrial clients, chemical plants, transportation terminals, retail petroleum sites, former manufactured gas plants, and active and inactive manufacturing sites. He has also worked at commercial and retail properties, dry-cleaning facilities, airports, formerly used defense sites (FUDS), rail yards, automotive facilities, and landfills. He has led multi-disciplinary teams through the development of innovative and cost-effective solutions to complex environmental challenges at sites across numerous industries with varying hydrogeologic settings and complex regulatory programs.
With extensive site assessment and remediation experience, Lane provides expertise on geochemical mechanisms controlling the mobility and natural attenuation of metals and chlorinated solvents in groundwater. He has led remedial investigations for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which included both human health and ecological risk assessments. In addition, he has successfully completed multiple alternate source demonstrations for CCR and other sites which showed that groundwater plumes resulted from natural contaminant sources rather than anthropogenic sources.
Lane has advanced the state of the practice by providing training and technical presentations on the characterization and remediation of metals contamination for CCR and other contaminated sites and has contributed to multiple innovative remedial technology applications for the in-situ treatment of metals and other contaminants, resulting in cost effective remedial strategies. He is a member of the Air and Waste Management Association (A&WMA), Society for American Military Engineers (SAME), and Partners for Environmental Progress (PEP) and serves on PEP's Policy and Projects Committee.
