Environmental Engineering

GLEC environmental engineers conduct engineering studies for a wide range of environmental applications, including:

  • Regulatory and cost-benefit analysis
  • Technical guidance for water quality standards development and implementation
  • Sampling designs for mass balance, eutrophication, and bioaccumulation studies
  • Total maximum daily load (TMDL) studies
  • Mixing zone and waste-load allocation (WLA) studies
  • Contaminant trackdown
  • Sediment trap sampling
  • Chemical and nutrient loading estimation
  • Statistical analysis of censored and otherwise badly-behaved data
  • Statistical modeling
  • Water quality modeling
  • Impacts of climate change on aquatic resources

Our experience working with both regulatory agencies and the regulated community enables GLEC to solve problems using a broad array of technical approaches.
