Matt rejoined GSI in early 2017 after 3 years at the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). He is an experienced hydrogeologist with a background in water resources, environmental investigations, and natural resource development projects. He supports our groundwater, environmental remediation, and stormwater projects.
At DEQ, Matt focused on regulation of underground injection control (UIC) devices, also known as drywells, which dispose of stormwater by infiltrating it into the subsurface. He also provided technical expertise for complicated stormwater problems and managed cleanup projects. His experience with DEQ processes and priorities helps him support our clients through a wide variety of environmental challenges.
Matt has an extensive understanding of stormwater and environmental issues. He is an expert in DEQ regulations, and groundwater and pollutant fate and transport modeling. He is knowledgeable about contaminant remediation, soil logging, well design, well rehabilitation, aquifer storage and recovery (ASR), and assessing hydrocarbon gas sources in shallow aquifers.
