A. Michel (Mike) Pelletier, PG Monroeville, Pennsylvania 15146 412-335-2517; MikePelletier2013@Gmail.com www.linkedin.com/in/pelletieram/ SENIOR ENVIRONMENTAL AND PHYSICAL HYDROGEOLOGIST SUMMARY Global Hydrogeologist with extensive experience in many fields, including: domestic and international environmental site assessments for soil and groundwater contamination, subsurface investigations for dams and nuclear power plants, and development of groundwater supplies. Worked within small to medium consulting firms under strict systems of Quality Assurance and Quality Control (both NQA-1 and ISO 9001). Proven abilities in complex technical writing, planning and leading of field and office work, staff mentoring, and implementing innovative technologies to reduce costs and improve productivity. Aquifer testing experience, covering their design, conduct, and analysis; Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments; and project management to achieve schedule and budget objectives. Successfully transitioned from environmental assessment investigations (governed by the EPA) to investigations for the dam and nuclear industry (governed by FERC and NRC) having a focus on structural and physical geology and hydrogeology. • Technical Innovator • Mentor and Teacher • Conceptual Model Developer • Team Builder • Continuous Improvement • Field Investigation Manager • Accomplished Technical • International Experience • Flexible in adjusting to new Writer work requirements PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE PAUL C. RIZZO ASSOCIATES, INC., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Award-winning international engineering consulting firm for dams and nuclear foundations. Technical Director of Geosciences 2007-2013. Management of the Geosciences group of 18 professionals, and directed the team for compliance with quality and profitability objectives. Conducted and reported on hydrogeology investigations for the foundations of nuclear power plants (NPPs) and dams, along with smaller projects related to mining, and the siting of NPPs. Revised the PSAR report for the proposed new Callaway Nuclear Power Plant, addressing NRC comments and achieving the client’s docketing goal, while personally becoming familiar with the requirements for the PSAR format. Successfully employed guidance from NRC, IAEA, FANR and other nuclear regulators on subsurface projects at proposed nuclear locations around the globe. Deployed an electronic system to facilitate capture of geologic data in the field and production of boring logs in the office, saving 80% in both the time and number of check-prints required to develop high-quality logs for field projects producing more than 4000 m of borings. Directed the development of Field Procedures that simplified field training and reduced by more than 70% the number of non-conformance reports (NCRs) generated during field operations. Developed and implemented an alternate methodology for evaluating the dewatering requirements for the excavation at the toe of the Bear Creek Dam, saving the project the $100k budgeted for installing and testing a series of wells.

Management of environmental and groundwater investigations as a private consultant: A contamination assessment at an industrial site in Puerto Rico. More than 50 ESA Phase I ESA reports per ASTM guidelines. EARTH TECH, INC. (formerly Rust Environment and Infrastructure, and now part of AECOM), Columbia, Aiken, and Greenville, SC. – An engineering and environmental consulting firm serving government and industrial clients. Senior Hydrogeologist 1993-2005. Completed contamination assessments and remedial designs for projects in the US and Puerto Rico under both the RCRA and CERCLA programs. Completed combined RCRA/CERCLA assessments at a number of sites and facilities at the Savannah River Site; providing both the work plans and the field programs. First to deploy the following innovative investigation tools during site assessments: HydroPunch™ on a RCRA site in South Carolina, saving the cost of the installation of wells and their subsequent re-sampling. Direct-push technology on a CERCLA site (Kalama Chemicals) in South Carolina, to identify appropriate sites for additional well installations. Assisted with the development and partial deployment of the Purge Water Management System (PWMS) to reduce costs of groundwater sampling at the Savannah River Site. ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCE Senior Hydrogeologist, Post, Buckley, Schuh & Jernigan, Inc. (now ATKINS), Columbia, SC. Project Geologist/Hydrogeologist, Sirrine Environmental Consultants, Inc., Greenville, SC. Staff Hydrogeologist/Regional Hydrologist, SC Water Resources Commission (now parts of SC DNR and SC DHEC), Columbia/Myrtle Beach, SC.
