Senior Environmental Scientist
Ms. Van Deusen has over 20 years of experience evaluating, remediating, and restoring both sensitive ecological ecosystems and coastline properties slated for redevelopment. Her advanced knowledge and expertise have been gained from investigation and remediation of a wide variety of coastal and suburban properties that have been impacted from industrial activities, discharges, and accidental releases. Her in-depth knowledge of groundwater, surface water stream and wetland hydrology allows her to both restore compromised habitats and to create them through ecological engineering. She utilizes multiple strategies in her design work for invasive species mitigation as well as environmental cleanup with bioremediation and phytoremediation. Her experience extends to closures of landfills with excessive leachate conditions, stormwater management and hydraulic groundwater control of riparian transition buffer areas adjacent to surface water bodies, sediment mitigation for dredge spoils and many other multi-matrix solutions for remediation. In addition to both impacted surface water and groundwater control, she can also design closure vapor mitigation strategies. She has extensive experience working on National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) documents and Clean Water Act, NPDES permits both as a consultant and a permittee. She has worked closely with both state and federal environmental protection agencies on numerous Superfund, Department of Energy and other projects throughout the United States.
