Dr. Wai Kwan is a Principal Engineer and a registered Professional Engineer with over 15 years of experience in the environmental engineering and consulting industry. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Engineering & Applied Science from the California Institute of Technology. He also holds an M.S. in Environmental Engineering and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Kwan has worked on and managed multiple sites involving remediation of chlorinated solvents and petroleum compounds. He has evaluated and implemented remedies using technologies such as in situ reductive dechlorination, in situ chemical oxidation, surfactants, air sparging, soil vapor extraction, and slurry wall. Dr. Kwan has also evaluated stormwater management at many sites and designed systems to meet discharge limits or to manage to specific design storms. The sites that Dr. Kwan has worked on include closed landfills, active and former petroleum terminals, shopping centers, dormant properties, residences, active and former industrial facilities, and recreational areas. Dr. Kwan has also been part of projects that evaluated source and timing of release of contamination, and allocated costs to multiple parties.
