Environmental Site Assessment

From 2006 to 2008, I worked as a Project Scientist for a small environmental consulting company, where I conducted Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) for a variety of commercial and industrial sites in Ontario.  Following a site visit, I would perform archival research using historic aerial photographs, fire insurance plans, city directories and soil and groundwater maps in order to identify potential sources of contamination to a site.  I would also prepare site drawings using AutoCAD, identifying the location of features such as oil or chemical storage tanks.
