Charlene McGue

Senior Environmental Consultant

Profile Picture

Charlene McGue has nearly three decades of experience in environmental science and consulting. She develops comprehensive closure strategies and plans for sites with environmental contamination, including planning and implementing remedial investigations, risk assessments, interim response actions, remedial response actions, operation and maintenance, and monitoring. Her technical strengths include characterizing contaminated sites through environmental sampling of groundwater, soil, soil-gas, surface water, and sediment; evaluating environmental contamination under Michigan's land-use-based cleanup criteria; designing and evaluating aquifer tests; evaluating groundwater flow systems; and evaluating contaminant fate and transport including natural attenuation.

Charlene is experienced in the assessment of the vapor intrusion and ambient air exposure pathways; documentation of mixing zones to assess groundwater/surface-water interface pathway; and evaluation of light non-aqueous phase liquid recoverability. Her knowledge of state and federal regulations such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act; Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; and the Michigan Environmental Response Act is valuable in planning investigations that support cleanup and closure within these programs.
