Jarrod is a strategic environmental consultant with Haley & Aldrich in our Boston, MA and Bedford, NH offices with 23+ years of industry experience working with national defense contractors, Superfund PRP Groups, the oil and gas industry, industrial clients, and municipalities. Throughout his career, Jarrod has been the project and technical manager for developing innovative alternatives for assessing and remediating soil and groundwater contamination and mitigating vapor intrusion concerns. He specializes in project planning and management, assessment and CSM development, and the selection, design, construction, implementation, and operation of remedial alternatives. A majority of his experience includes sites with commingled recalcitrant contaminants, non-aqueous phase liquids, sensitive receptors, vapor intrusion, and source elimination/control.
Jarrod has a proven success record for mitigating project expenses and environmental liabilities at sites using complex CSM development, pre-design investigations to reduce uncertainties and refine remedial approaches, and implementing the appropriate remedial strategy that aligns with PRP objectives and site conditions. He has successfully and effectively managed remedial strategies including soil vapor extraction, sparging, groundwater extraction, thermal remediation, excavation, in-situ chemical reduction, in-situ chemical oxidation, and in-situ bioaugmentation.

To implement in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) technologies, one must understand several critical pieces of information to develop an effective and strong Quantitative Conceptual Site Model (QCSM). While information regarding historical operations is necessary to locate the general vicinity of potential source areas and limited subsurface data can be useful, implementing a high-cost source remedy like ISTR requires a strategic Pre-Design Investigation (PDI) to limit the number and magnitude of surprises. It is, therefore, critically important to have a sufficient and detailed understanding of subsurface conditions, chemical composition and extent of the source area(s), and plume/non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) dynamics, all of which will play a major role in the effectiveness of the ISTR remedy.
The objective of this poster is to provide a general summary of geological and engineering perspectives and considerations for ISTR remedies, PDI techniques to develop an effective QCSM, and best management practices for designing, implementing, and operating an ISTR system.
