AcuityES is adding to our breadth and depth of expertise to provide our clients with better environmental assessment and remediation solutions.
Services to the Mining, Timber Preservation and Plating Industries can range from the inclusion of geochemical protection in the design of new facilities, better operational understanding of monitoring data at operational sites, and cost-effective, environmentally-appropriate remediation techniques of contamination both while the facility is in operation and during closure. For the most part, these remedial activities will be in-situ in nature, duplicating the natural reactions that bind metals and radionuclides into minimally-soluble minerals.
Steve Irvin, Principal at AcuityES, has a simple philosophy when it comes to expanding AcuityES’s reach. “We saw the opportunity to add Jim (Jimmy) Rouse to our team as a major expansion of Acuity’s expertise. Not just for his first-person work and experience; but as a way to proliferate his focus on in situ remediation techniques to remediate dissolved mobile metals, metalloids and radionuclides often found in mining operations; plating facilities; automotive industry sites and timber-preservation facilities; Jim is an internationally recognized expert in these areas. He brings us the technical and practical depth to lift AcuityES’s solution offerings even further.”
Mr. Rouse has 50 years of relevant experience, including 17 years with various Federal agencies and 33 years as a consultant to industry throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Scotland and New Zealand. He is internationally known for his work on the subsurface behavior of heavy metals and radionuclides, and has developed innovative approaches for in-situ remediation of metals, especially hexavalent chromium, in soil and ground water. Mr. Rouse has authored more than 50 publications, dealing with the subject of natural and man-aided attenuation of heavy metals; radiochemicals; cyanide contamination; and vadose zone monitoring. He has made a number of presentations to technical meetings and taught numerous short courses. He has been qualified as an expert witness approximately 30 times, in the area of heavy metal and radiochemical migration and remediation.
