Randy has over 30 years of professional drafting and engineering support experience. His primary responsibility at Creek Run is construction of concise, easily interpreted site plans used in Creek Run reports. Typically, Randy visits a site early in a project and plots the locations of all surface and subsurface features (i.e. tank locations and utility line trenches), takes pictures to document property conditions, and identifies any features that may restrict sample collection access. Based on his field drawings, photographs, and notes, Randy uses AutoCad software to construct detailed site plans of study areas. Randy works closely with project managers and field technicians throughout the mapping process to ensure that all pertinent features are identified and located. Accurate site plans becomes the basis upon which additional project data, such as groundwater flow, soil and groundwater analytical results, and piping layouts, is presented. Randy prepares detailed engineering drawings of feasibility testing results, flow processes, and remediation equipment for use in Corrective Action Plan (CAP), Remediation Work Plan (RWP), permit applications, and bid specification documents. He also prepares soil boring logs, monitoring well construction diagrams, and water well location maps for use in reports submitted to regulatory agencies and clients.
