Jacques Smith , Ph.D.

Geosyntec Consultants
Dr. Smith manages Geosyntec’s Technology Evaluation Laboratory (TEL). His primary focus is objective testing and innovation of remedial solutions to generate an unbiased review of the proposed technology thereby highlighting potential shortcomings or unforeseen outcomes prior to full scale implementation. Specific areas of expertise include: biological waste reclamation of CCR for beneficial reuse; abiotic and biotic sorbent technologies to remove metals, nutrients and bacteria from storm water; evaluating various oxidation processes for water treatment; atmospheric conditions that may trigger eutrophication in lake sediment; and testing and data accumulation to support engineering designs for optimal CCR dewatering strategies. Dr. Smith also collaborates closely with Geosyntec’s wholly owned subsidiary laboratory SiREM ensuring preprocessing of groundwater samples for molecular analysis.
