  • Senior Project Manager for multiple projects to support remediation activities at a 130+ acre active railyard State Superfund site. Responsibilities included characterization of subsurface conditions and remediation of PCB, lead, semi volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), and separate-phase hydrocarbon soil and groundwater contamination. Mr. Wills was responsible for overseeing the implementation of remediation activities, including soil excavations intended for off-site disposal and surfactant injections.
