Daniel White has extensive experience in the environmental industry, supervising projects ranging from the removal leaking underground storage tanks to the investigation and remediation of large industrial sites. He is a Connecticut Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP license #447). A hydrogeologist by training, Mr. White began his environmental career in January 1991 investigating, designing and implementing remedial action plans for Federal CERCLA (“Superfund”) sites in New York and New Jersey including Mattiace Petrochemical site in Glen Cove, NY and GCL Tie and Treating site in Sidney, NY. From 1991 through 2002, he was employed as an environmental consultant overseeing a wide variety of environmental investigation and remediation projects including gasoline service stations, nursing homes and hospitals, dry cleaning facilities, auto wrecking operations, and large industrial facilities. His clients during this period included: Schering-Plough, Mobil, Pfizer, and Hubbell, Inc.
From 2002 through 2007, Mr. White served as an Environmental Analyst for the Remediation Division of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP), overseeing the investigation and remediation of properties under several State programs including: Property Transfer Program, Voluntary Remediation Program, RCRA Corrective Action, Potable Water Program, Brownfield Redevelopment Program, and Significant Hazard Notification. At the time, Mr. White was one of only two LEPs employed by the CTDEP. In particular, he managed sites with complex hydrogeological issues. Mr. White was also CTDEP Project Manager on several complex Brownfield sites such as the Mattatuck Manufacturing site in Waterbury, O’Sullivan’s Island in Derby, and Cook Industrial Center in Ansonia. He is familiar with Brownfield funding regulations and processes including CERCLA §104(k) governing Brownfield Revitalization Funding. While at the CTDEP, he regularly provided guidance to LEPs to ensure that the investigations were conducted in accordance with prevailing standards and guidelines and remediation was conducted in accordance with the Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs). He also reviewed Verification Reports to ensure that the opinions of the LEP were based on an appropriate understanding of the environmental conditions of the site and that the verification was in compliance with all applicable statutes and regulations. When necessary, Mr. White prepared and assisted with audit proceedings. During this period, Mr. White was a member of the revision committee for the CTDEP “Site Characterization Guidance Document” and was an active member of the ASTM International committee revising the ASTM “E1903-97(2002) Standard Guide for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Process”.
