Throughout his career, Matt’s project management and technical expertise have helped public, private and federal sector clients in a host of industries including power and utilities, waste management, chemical manufacturing, oil and gas, food and beverage, engine manufacturing, and aerospace. Recently, Matt has concentrated on assessment, remediation, and design projects related to phosphate mining wastes and coal combustion residual site characterization and dewatering activities for coal-fired electric utilities in the Southeast.
His water resources background includes the design and implementation of groundwater geochemical tracer studies, aquifer performance testing programs, exploratory drilling programs, wellhead protection studies, and production well drilling programs. In addition, Matt has experience in the design and management of industrial filtration and pipeline systems.
Matt provides hydrogeologic investigation management for solid waste greenfield landfill projects and an array of water quality compliance issues. His contaminated site investigation experience has included chlorinated solvents, metals, inorganics and radionuclides sites with studies focusing on groundwater, soil, and soil vapor. Matt also has extensive applied experience with environmental remediation technologies including air sparge, soil vapor extraction, multi-phase extraction, biostimulation/bioaugmentation, zero valent iron emulsion, and optimized pump and treat. He was awarded the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) Group Achievement Award in 2003 for his contributions during the implementation of a chlorinated solvent remedial pilot test.
In addition to his consulting practice, he has served as a guest graduate instructor at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida and is Vice Chairman the University of South Florida Geology Alumni Society. Matt actively presents on water resources and site assessment topics at technical conferences in the United States. He is active in several professional societies including the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), Tampa Bay Association of Environmental Professionals (TBAEP), Southeastern Bottled Water Association (SEBWA), American Water Resources Association (AWRA), and is a board member with the Florida Association for Water Quality Control (FAWQC).
