    Key Experience

    Barksdale Air Force Base (AFB) Long-Term Monitoring Project, Bossier City, LA, U.S. Air Force (USAF)

    Project Manager and Geologist

    Responsible for quarterly sampling of groundwater monitoring wells and the collection of air samples from the In-Situ Air Sparging/Soil Vapor Extraction (IAS/SVE) system at a former gasoline station; semi-annual groundwater sampling at six sites; and semi-annual sediment sampling at two other sites on the Base. Danielle served as Project Manager, coordinating and overseeing all field efforts with additional personnel and subcontractors, as well as all report writing. Supervised drilling activities at several sites on-Base to abandon and replace monitoring wells. Interfaced with the applicable regulatory agency (Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality [LDEQ] and the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence [AFCEE]). Negotiated No Further Action (NFA) status for two of the sites. Updated the Base-wide RCRA permit application. Developed Remedial Action Plans for the remaining six sites. Produced site-specific Field Sampling Plan (FSP), and semi-annual and annual groundwater monitoring reports for submittal to LDEQ/AFCEE.

    Hydrogeologist

    As hydrogeologist, Danielle provided hydrogeological support for several sites including regulatory interpretation, support to field investigations for the determination of groundwater flow, and contaminant fate/transport studies. She was responsible for oversight of geologists and scientists and technical editing in developing a Project Management Plan, Field Sampling Plans, Work Plans, Decision Documents, and other technical reports. Work has also included coordination of technical support to multiple landfills and wetland sites.
