Mr. Wentz is an environmental professional with 20 years of experience in report preparation, project management, field inspection, sample collection & documentation. Mr. Wentz is a Florida State Board-certified Professional Geologist and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Qualified Stormwater Management Inspector.

 

Mr. Wentz graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Geology and a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry from West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV.

Shortly after, Mr. Wentz earned his Master of Science degree in Geology from West Virginia University. His graduate thesis research focused on laboratory batch tests of coal combustion fly ash by-product mixed with known concentrations of common petroleum contaminants found in groundwater, in order to measure the organic sorption of fly ash, as a potential remediation surrogate.

 

From 2002 until the present, Mr. Wentz has worked full-time as a private consultant on projects in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, District of Columbia and Florida. Mr. Wentz prepares reports and manages field work for Due Diligence, Phase I & II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), Underground Storage Tank (UST) & Above Ground Storage Tank (AST) Closure Assessments, throughout various commercial and industrial sites, using: Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), hand-auger, sonic and direct-push, hollow-stem-auger and mud-rotary sample collection and monitoring well installation methods, in order to delineate the extents of metals, light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) and dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) in soil and groundwater.
