ABOUT MOUNTAIN LAUREL ENVIRONMENTAL

Mountain Laurel Environmental, LLC has over 25 years experience in the environmental consulting industry, serving the state of Connecticut. Mountain Laurel Environmental investigates and remediates a wide variety of property sites including residential leaking underground oil storage tanks, gasoline service stations, dry cleaning facilities, auto body repair shops, historic manufactured gas sites, chemical plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, agricultural properties, pesticide manufacturing sites, “Superfund” sites, and turn-of-the-century factories. The Mountain Laurel Environmental staff has dealt with an extensive range of pollutants and the processes through which contaminants enter and migrate through soil, groundwater, and the environment in general. Dan White of Mountain Laurel Environmental is a Connecticut Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP). The state of Connecticut maintains very strict criteria to obtain a LEP license (see criteria list bottom of page).

FORMER CTDEP STAFF

Mountain Laurel Environmental personnel include a former staff member of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP) Remediation Division. We understand the requirements and nuances of CTDEP programs and Department expectations with regard to investigations, remediation, laboratory analytical requirements, and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC). During the CTDEP tenure, our staff learned the Connecticut environmental regulations and guidance in detail, and helped write the Site Characterization Guidance Document, which describes how environmental investigations are to be conducted. Mountain Laurel Environmental staff currently serves on several CTDEP guidance document committees.

EPOC-EDCOMM

Mountain Laurel Environmental personnel serve on the Environmental Professionals Organization of Connecticut (EPOC) Education Committee (EdComm). EPOC-EdComm develops courses on technical and regulatory subjects needed to meet the educational requirements for LEPs. Committee members must keep current with new and/or upcoming sampling and analytical methods, regulatory changes, new guidance documents, and developing environmental issues to ensure necessary courses are offered and LEPs are properly trained.

CERCLA SITE EXPERIENCE

Mountain Laurel Environmental personnel have extensive experience in Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA or “Superfund”) sites. Considered the “worst of the worst”, often large industrial properties with complex environmental and hydrogeologic issues; these sites require well developed sampling plans, specialized techniques and equipment, strict health and safety protocols, and precise implementation of sampling plans. The three-month duration field projects also require careful logistical planning.
