Jerry Lisiecki, PhD.

Doctor Jerry Lisiecki is a Senior Project Manager, working out of the Clean Harbors office in Ithaca, Michigan. He holds a Doctorate in Limnology, and a Masters in Aquatic Biology. Jerry Lisiecki has over 35 years of experience in the design, construction, and operation of environmental remediation systems.   Some of his work includes:

  • Leading the design, installation, and operation of an SVE system targeting 425,000 cubic yards of impacted soil, reaching regulatory cleanup levels within one year.
  • SVE and air sparge system design and installation, used to reduce TCE in the soil and groundwater below regulatory goals, resulting in a No Further Action letter. In situ calcium polysulfide application was used to reduce and precipitate hexavalent chromium in the soil and groundwater. Source concentrations was reduced >99.5%.
  • Developed and oversaw step-wise remedial strategy (Fenton’s reagent and potassium permanganate chemical oxidation followed by augmented, in situ bioremediation) at a 6-acre site contaminated with chlorinated solvents. Total VOCs were reduced >99% in five of six sources. An ultraviolet light and hydrogen peroxide oxidation system destroyed 1,4-dioxane in groundwater recovered from the site. Assisted development and negotiation of restrictive covenants on neighboring properties. Site closed.
  • Employed Fenton’s reagent chemical oxidation of free phase chlorinated solvent sources followed by augmented reductive dechlorination of residual and dissolved contaminants. TCE concentrations decreased >95% percent across the site.
  • Addressed NAPL from a diesel LUST using in situ chemical oxidation. Ozone is manufactured on site and injected into the soil and groundwater beneath a building and parking lot.
  • Evaluated past pump and disposal system that addresses the core of a landfill leachate plume. Developed alternative strategies including enhanced or augmented in situ bioremediation, to either remediate plume core or control migration. Alternatives have reduced project cost substantially.
  • Evaluated remedial alternatives and developed preliminary remedial design for free product petroleum hydrocarbon fuels beneath an active terminal. System integrates dual phase extraction, oil-water separation, and in situ biodegradation. Participated in final engineering, design review, system start-up, and OM&M.
  • Bachelors of Science, Biology, Major, Chemistry, Minor
  • Masters of Science, Aquatic Biology
