Peter Dollar, M.Sc.

Peter is a Senior Consultant based in Ontario with more than 30 years of experience focused on site characterization, remediation strategy, remedial design and implementation, and risk management. He specializes in site characterization for development of conceptual site models and remediation of sites impacted by chlorinated solvents, petroleum hydrocarbons, and metals in soil and groundwater.

Peter's technical expertise is focused on the geochemistry of contaminated soils and groundwater, and contaminant fate and transport in porous and fractured media, with a particular focus on the assessment and remediation of chlorinated solvents and other dense non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs) in soil and groundwater.

With practical experience spanning North America, South America, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia, he has consulted with clients on the implementation of in situ permeable reactive barriers, in situ chemical oxidation, and enhanced in situ bioremediation for the treatment of chlorinated solvents. Peter also specializes in remediation project management; full-scale implementation of newly emerging remedial technologies at impacted sites; and risk-based redevelopment of client sites. His project management experience encompasses site investigations, evaluation and selection of remedial alternatives, and remedial design and implementation in a wide range of regulatory environments.
