  • Full Profile

    Kristin VanLandingham is a registered professional engineer with 21 years of experience in environmental remediation and site assessment activities at state-regulated, RCRA and CERCLA facilities.  Kristin focuses on remedy selection, remedial system design, operation & maintenance, performance monitoring, and reporting. She is experienced in the remediation of chlorinated solvents and other recalcitrant compounds in groundwater, surface water, soil, and sediments.  Kristin is also experienced with the remediation of petroleum products, pesticides, terpenes, phthalates, metals, and other compounds.

    She has designed, implemented, and managed numerous remediation projects employing a variety of remedial technologies such as groundwater recovery and treatment projects (in particular air strippers, activated carbon treatment, and off-gas treatment), soil vapor extraction, multi-phase extraction, air sparging/biosparging, in situ technologies, and monitored natural attenuation.  Kristin has prepared RCRA permit applications, NPDES permit applications, feasibility studies, corrective measures studies, work plans, remedial design documents and specifications, as-built drawings, and performance monitoring reports

    Kristin has management and evaluation experience on a variety of assessment and remediation projects that total over $1 million annually.  She has developed an effective working relationship with engineers, geologists, environmental professionals, and resource managers within and outside the firm.  She has also participated in negotiations with regulatory agencies for many types of contaminated facilities.
