Contaminated Site Investigation and Remediation in New England

Project Partner: Environmental Resources Management (ERM), Summer 2019

Project Summary: Lucila joined ERM’s Site Investigation and Remediation team to support contaminated site management measures.  She worked with soil and water contaminant data for sites in the Northeast and provided data management, analysis, and visualization.  Throughout, she learned about federal and state environmental laws on contaminants and how private firms comply with them.  The Environmental Health class she took through URBAN’s program gave her a great primer on contaminants and their relation to human and ecosystem health, providing a deeper dimension to her contaminated site work.

Project Deliverables: Lucila published a popular science article, Alexa, What’s Your Carbon Footprint?, in envirobites to further her experience in science communication.
