Mindy Chaturgan is a multidisciplinary geologist particularly familiar with the NJDEP Site Remediation Program and has more than 20 years of experience. Ms. Chaturgan’s responsibilities center on the performance of environmental, hydrogeologic, geotechnical projects. Her project experience includes the delineation of groundwater and soil contamination through both consolidated and unconsolidated media, remediation, vapor intrusion investigations, and site assessments. She has experience in the sampling and evaluation of subsurface hydrogeologic data relative to aquifer contamination/remediation projects. Her geotechnical experience includes: geological site investigations, lithologic and geotechnical back-mapping techniques, rock-bolting, soil and rock core logging techniques, and tunnel inspection/mapping.

Experience Highlights

Landfill Closure/Post-Closure Engineering Services, Dukes Parkway Landfill, Somerset County/Maverick Construction Co., Inc./Schuller International, Inc. (formerly Manville Sales Corp.), Somerset County, NJ. Provided continuous landfill closure/post-closure engineering services for this 65-acre non-chemical industrial/municipal solid waste landfill. Conducted post-closure monitoring and inspection services, including semi-annual groundwater monitoring and reporting, landfill gas surveys, air sampling, and quarterly landfill inspections.

Phase I and II Environmental Site Investigation, New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP), Maspeth, Queens, NY. Constructed stratigraphic well columns of soil borings and compiled cross-sections, following the Unified Soil Classification System, utilizing AutoCAD. These drawings were used for geotechnical representation of the field site investigation and have significant interest to the Design Group associated with the NYCDEP in terms of the structural stability of a proposed archive building.

Groundwater Remediation Services, County Garage, Ocean County, NJ. Performed remedial investigations/actions related to remediation of discharges from underground storage tank (UST) systems that resulted in soil and groundwater contamination. Installed a series of 18-2-inch diameter monitoring wells utilized in a pilot test for in-situ chemical injection remedial technology.



  • 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?
