Occupational Safety and Health; Environmental Compliance
Assessment; and P2 Programs,
FAA, Illinois and Indiana
Mr. Hunter served as the Program Manager for FAA’s
health and safety, compliance, and P2 programs in
two states. He developed the process and led the
team that evaluated 240 sites in Illinois. He managed
the input of data into FAA-supplied software that
generated the assessment reports. Mr. Hunter also
managed the revision of software to provide increased
flexibility in field applications and report preparation.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs),
Fort Knox and USAR Facilities
Mr. Hunter performed storm water surveys of industrial
activities at Fort Knox and 14 Reserve Centers in
Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. He prepared
the plans, reviewed the pertinent regulations and
historical records, described the current site conditions,
identified best management practices, and prepared
site-specific SWPPs in accordance with the CWA and
the storm water permit guidelines for each state.
The plans were standardized and enabled the Army
to implement consistent training across all state
OSHA and Asbestos Surveys,
Various Commercial/Industrial Clients
Mr. Hunter has conducted over 20 industrial hygiene
assessments at industrial facilities for compliance
with OSHA regulations. Mr. Hunter assessed the facilities
for employee exposure to chemical contaminants (asbestos,
radon, indoor air quality, lead, etc.), safety issues
and ergonomic concerns. Mr. Hunter collected the
samples, analyzed the laboratory data, and prepared
reports that presented the results and conclusions.
The reports enabled the clients to determine current
and future risk of operations and facilities.
FAA’s Environmental and Safety Program.
Mr. Hunter managed the FAA’s Environmental
and Occupational Safety and Health Audit data and
the development of the FAA’s Annual Inspection
Program (AIP). Mr. Hunter managed the day-to-day
activities associated with a FAA SEAMS help-line,
established to provide customers assistance with
Environmental Health and Safety data and solutions.
He also led the team in developing a findings tracking
program that is used to track incidence of noncompliance
at the 65,000 FAA facilities across the country.
Environmental Assessments, U.S. Army Installations.
Mr. Hunter has provided oversight in the preparation
of a draft EA of an Integrated Natural Resource
Management Plan (INRMP) at Fort Bragg and Camp Mackall,
North Carolina. Issues of concern include the military
mission, threatened and endangered species, and
forest management. Mr. Hunter led a multidisciplinary
team of scientists and engineers in the preparation
of an EA and associated FNSI for a proposed development
of landing zones, drop zones and a tactical airstrip
at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Issues of concern included
threatened and endangered species, wetlands, erosion,
water quality, noise, and cultural resources. The
documents were completed in accordance with NEPA
and Army regulations.
Environmental Assessments, Army Reserve
Mr. Hunter is overseeing the preparation of the
EA at the Army Reserve Area Maintenance Support
Activity in Curtis Bay, Maryland. The facility has
a pier in need of repair, which has degrading sheet
piling causing sinkholes to develop threatening
the structural integrity of the building located
Various Commercial/Industrial Clients
Mr. Hunter conducted 30 remedial investigations
to determine impacts to groundwater quality from
industrial operations. Mr. Hunter determined soil
boring locations, identified suspected contaminants,
collected soil and water samples, analyzed sample
results, designed and installed sparge and vent
wells, and conducted pumping tests to evaluate the
use of bioremediation.
Remediation Systems Various Commercial/Industrial
Mr. Hunter managed four installations and one retrofit
for remediation systems in Michigan. The typical
system was a sparge and vent system that enhanced
bioremediation activities by increasing dissolved
oxygen in the groundwater.
Pollution Prevention Plans/Pollution Prevention
Opportunity Assessments (PPOA),
Louisville District USACE & Naval
Mr. Hunter conducted PPOAs at WPAFB, Niagara International
Airport, Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport,
Fort Knox, Fort Campbell, and 13 Naval Activities
that supported Air and Naval operations. Mr. Hunter
inventoried hazardous materials, calculated fugitive
air emissions, evaluated disposal procedures, and
identified the types and quantities of solid and
liquid waste streams, and recycling activities.
Mr. Hunter prepared a report that detailed the assessment
findings, recommended alternative products and procedures,
and provided economic analyses of each recommendation.
Hazmart Implementation Services, US Army.
Mr. Hunter led a multi-disciplined team in the effort
to implement the pharmacy concept at Fort Knox and
Fort Drum. He focused on utilizing existing HM inventory
systems and data in order to populate the Army HM
tracking system Hazardous Substance Management System
(HSMS). The work required supplemental data from
other DOD systems to fully populate the HSMS database.
The total electronic population effort was the first
of its kind for the Army and involved developing
custom software to interface with FEDLOG and the
Hazardous Material Information System (HMIS). Mr.
Hunter also helped establish business practices
and trained users on the HSMS system.
Solid Waste Studies, WPAFB, Ohio.
Mr. Hunter collected data to analyze the type and
amount of solid waste generated at WPAFB. Mr. Hunter
evaluated the data to determine the appropriate
locations for additional recycling activities and
a reduction/schedule change in solid waste pickup.
These changes enabled the Air Force to meet recycling
goals and saved money by reducing collection activities.
