Joseph has worked for RMC since 1999 as a Hydrogeologist and Project Manager. Joe’s responsibilities generally include all aspects of environmental investigations. He is responsible for preparation of cost proposals and technical proposals, preparation of workplans and quality assurance plans, implementation of field work, coordination and oversight of subcontractors, management of environmental databases, and preparation of project reports.
Much of Joseph’s work for RMC has been performed for federal clients including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Forest Service, and the National Park Service. He typically acts as field team leader or field operations manager for subsurface investigation projects while providing supervision and training of several geologists and technicians. Joe has overseen numerous drilling and groundwater monitoring programs at active and formerly used Defense Sites located around the U.S.
Since 2008, he has managed all field investigations at the former Atlas D Missile Site 4, where improper disposal of a persistent volatile organic compound has led to contamination of the local aquifer. Joe has worked closely with USACE scientists and managers in performance of various Remedial Investigation and Long-Term Monitoring projects, including the in-progress RI Addendum tasks, scheduled for completion in 2019. As Field Operations Manager and Project Hydrogeologist during most of the follow-on work performed in support of the original RI for Site 4, Joe has provided valuable technical continuity as RMC has enjoyed success on several large contracts for Atlas D Missile Site 4.
Joseph is a graduate of St. Lawrence University, earning a B.S. in Geology, 1989. He has worked as a hydrogeologist in the environmental consulting field since 1990.
