Ruth Custance is a Senior Principal Environmental Scientist based in California with more than 20 years of experience focused on the development and effective communication of risk-based approaches for site assessment and remediation.
Ruth has lead project teams in utilizing the latest risk assessment and data analysis technologies to optimize remedial approaches. These approaches provide adequate risk reduction while being cost-effective. She has provided critical input into the risk management planning for proposed redevelopment properties both in the United States and globally.

Her strategies not only meet the environmental stewardship and financial management objectives of her clients, but also fully address regulatory compliance issues.
In addition to her risk assessment practice, Ruth is actively involved in site assessment and remediation projects, working with clients such as the Los Angeles Unified School District on site redevelopment initiatives.
