Client Spotlight: Johnathan Reeve
Jonathan Reeve, a Senior Hydrogeologist with EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. PBC, is drawn to the challenge of contaminated site investigation and remediation because they are like solving a mystery, one clue at a time. He begins, “As a Hydrogeologist, I investigate all of the geologic aspects of contaminated sites, with an emphasis on groundwater movement. Groundwater is a media that is not easily observed and always represents a big puzzle at a site. Putting together the available pieces of evidence to determine the groundwater pathway from a source to a receptor can be quite challenging and gratifying.”

REGENESIS and AECOM Join the Aviation Pros Podcast: A Solution for the PFAS Problem at Airports
For the aviation industry, PFAS are most commonly found in the foam used to combat airfield fires. Scott Wilson, CEO and President of REGENESIS, was recently featured on the AviationPros Podcast: The PFAS Problem alongside Rosa Gwinn, Global PFAS Technical Leader for AECOM. The episode discusses the harm PFAS pose to people and the environment – and what can be done about them. Listen to the full episode using the link below.

Eliminate the Risk of PFAS with Colloidal Activated Carbon
In situ remediation with colloidal activated carbon eliminates risk of PFAS contamination in soil and groundwater at a low-cost. By coating flux zones of an aquifer with colloidal activated carbon, a permeable sorption barrier is created in situ, purifying groundwater as it passively migrates. PFAS constituents from up-gradient source zones are rapidly sorbed to the carbon and removed from the mobile dissolved phase. By removing PFAS from the mobile phase, the route of exposure to down-gradient receptors is eliminated, thereby eliminating the down-gradient public health risk associated with PFAS.
A Proven Approach to Eliminate PFAS Risk at Airport Sites
REGENESIS has applied PlumeStop, a proven colloidal activated carbon remediation technology, to eliminate PFAS risk at airport sites in the US and in Europe. Applied in situ at low pressure, PlumeStop coats the aquifer surface and acts like a purifying filter, removing mobile, dissolved-phase PFAS contaminants from groundwater. PlumeStop replaces costly pump and treat systems and creates zero waste stream. Watch the video to learn more about how PlumeStop eliminates PFAS risk at airport sites.
Fuel Spill from Truck Rollover Receives No Further Action Following PetroFix Application
This case study reviews a semi-truck that was hauling gasoline and diesel and overturned into a dry irrigation ditch in Montana. The diesel tanks ruptured and released fuel into the ditch, impacting the shallow water table with petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs), including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX). The irrigation ditch feeds a larger irrigation canal that empties into the Yellowstone River. In response, an area of approximately 2,500 square feet area was excavated and approximately 800 tons of the grossly impacted soils were removed. Following the emergency response effort, Pioneer Technical Services, Inc. (Pioneer) reviewed the emergency response report, completed a site inspection and met with the property owner to discuss the emergency response clean-up reconstruction methods and materials to be used.
