BACKGROUND:

Over the past 20 years, Mr. Giordano has consulted on environmental remediation projects across New England and New York. His extensive experience includes environmental remediation and emergency response of contaminants of concern ranging for chlorinated solvents (tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE)), Polychlorinated Biphenyls, to petroleum products and metal impacts. He has worked with a wide range of clients: the MassDOT, MassPort, the MBTA, residential, industrial and commercial clients to resolve environmental concerns at properties they own or are purchasing. Mr. Giordano has served as both a Licensed Site Professional and a Sr. Project Manager on environmental compliance audits, remediation design and installation, and emergency response sites.

Mr. Giordano’s work on a myriad of projects has allowed for novel approaches to resolving complex projects from treatment system installation through risk assessment methodology. This background in various sites, contaminants and clients allows him to bring knowledge to projects that focus on final closure. Mr. Giordano has been involved with over 100 emergency response actions across New England. He has worked at residential properties, truck accidents on major interstates, commercial redevelopment and construction projects. Emergency projects require coordination of multiple governmental agencies (EPA, Coast Guard, MassDEP, municipal fire and local boards). Mr. Giordano’s knowledge of the regulations and local contractors has allowed him to move these types of projects forward expeditiously.

Presentations at Public Involvement Plan (PIP) projects typically involve neighbors displeased with remedial actions. Mr. Giordano has presented and explained these complex projects in front of many local boards and at open meetings. These presentations must allow all parties to understand the regulations and the complexity of the compound of interest. He has presented on projects involving elevated lead, PCBs, petroleum from a historic tank farm and solvents. Mr. Giordano has overseen the design of complex treatment systems for both MassDOT as well as private developers. Recent remedial designs have included dewatering systems of up to 1,000 gpm of impacted water to allow repair of a local bridge; stabilization of lead impacted (failed TCLP) soil for the redevelopment of a property along Route 128 and the microbial design for the treatment of a solvent plume in a residential neighborhood. Each selected remedial action must be selected with fiscal forethought. Each design requires a melding of developers, financiers, regulators and local communities to move an impacted property to closure.
