He has personally worked on and closed more than 100 Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) cases.  He also has used the Municipal Setting Designation (MSD) in several Texas cities as a risk-based option to address contaminated sites, especially properties impacted from chlorinated solvents and metals.

Michael has worked on a broad range of projects in the region, including dry cleaners and shopping centers, service stations (LPST cases), Superfund projects in Texas and the northeast, West Dallas Superfund (EPA and TCEQ), battery manufacturing facilities, former Poly-cycle Industrial facility (battery wastes), Phelps Dodge refinery in El Paso, General Cable facilities in Texas, former chemical facility in Farmers Branch, PEMEX facilities in Mexico, semiconductor facilities, Transco/Williams Schlumberger, and oil & gas leases.  With many of these projects, Michael has worked together with the client’s legal counsel to successfully complete projects.

Tasks include TCEQ file reviews for closed Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP), Innocent Owner/Operator Program (IOP), and Leaking Petroleum Storage Tank (LPST) cases that were on the Site or neighboring properties, research of Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) sites, and review of previous reports. The Staff understand tight project budgets, quality, and schedule. Most of the Phase I ESAs are performed in one to two weeks.

The Staff work on a wide range of Phase II Investigations concerning chemicals of concern (COCs) such as RCRA metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-VOCs (SVOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and herbicides/pesticides. The work includes soil, groundwater, soil gas (vapor), indoor air, and pond/lake sediment sampling.
