Experience Highlights

Project Manager/Disposal Coordinator for a soil testing, classification and disposal project at a major pharmaceutical company in Summit, New Jersey.  The project involved over 100,000 tons of soil to be managed in all aspects working under strict time sensitive guidelines.  Specifically, expedited soil borings, including lab work, was conducted to determine the quality of the soil, which was being excavated as part of a major construction project. Based on the analytical results, the soils were then routed to appropriate end-use facilities, again adhering to strict time sensitive guidelines.

Compliance Specialist for a RCRA-related hazardous materials management effort at a major, private university in New Jersey.  Working at each of the University’s campuses, Mr. Gorczyca planned and led the effort to completely inventory all hazardous materials, including Facilities and the Academic departments.  He developed a plan that included recommendations to bring the University into compliance with CRTK and HazCom requirements.  As part of this effort, Mr. Gorczyca worked closely with University facility staff, researchers, and academic heads to implement the program in a manner that did not disrupt either University business or research activities.




  • How surety bonds expand post-remediation care options to meet financial assurance requirements

    Earlier in 2019, the New Jersey legislature approved updates to the 2009 Site Recovery Reform Act (SRRA), a suite of improvements known collectively as SRRA 2.0. Introduced a decade after the original SRRA, this legislation sought out to improve upon the original set of regulations. One such tweak was to the list of acceptable remedial […]

  • How vapor intrusion is discovered and remediated

    Co-Authored by Don Richardson, President and Jacob Strauss, Senior Engineer.

    Vapor intrusion has evolved into one of the highest risks commercial real estate developers and owners face. Vapor intrusion can pose a greater risk than contaminated soil or groundwater. The rise of vapors from contaminated sources into buildings can pose an immediate risk if they reach hazardous levels.

  • Tackling post-remediation care in New Jersey

    Environmental remediation projects are rarely a one-and-done undertaking. A site may need to be monitored and maintained long after regulatory agency closure, if the active remediation did not achieve the most stringent cleanup standards.

  • Before you excavate, explore compliance attainment

    Developers may not know that there’s more than one way to tackle a soil remediation project. Many assume that this kind of cleanup calls for a total excavation, carting off truckloads of contaminated soil to be cleaned or replaced entirely. However, for some projects, such an invasive and labor-intensive process may not be necessary.

  • Advancing Complex Brownfields Redevelopment, Made Simple

    Decades of unregulated, uncontrolled and poor environmental practices have led to millions of acres of “brownfields” in the U.S., properties which must be properly remediated before they are repurposed or redeveloped. These properties come in all shapes and sizes, affected by a vast array of contaminants associated with industrial operations. What is a brownfield, and what makes it different from other types of contaminated sites?
