Paul Fuglevand, PE
Senior Principal Engineer

Mr. Fuglevand has over 30 years of nationwide consulting experience at several of the country’s largest Superfund sites in the assessment and management of contaminated sediments, including the design and construction oversight of sediment remediation. Having integrated lessons learned from decades of work, he helps clients implement effective and efficient site-specific solutions to contaminated sediment issues.

For the past 20 years, Mr. Fuglevand has served as technical director, project manager, and project coordinator for work set forth in EPA Agreed Orders at various Superfund sites. In those roles, he has been responsible for organizing and managing multi-company consulting teams; coordinating with EPA on behalf of the PRP group; negotiating scopes of work and schedules with EPA; and providing oversight. The nature of the agreed-to work includes remedial investigations, feasibility studies, remedial design, and remedial action for multi-phase sediment remediation projects involving several million cubic yards of cumulative contaminated sediments.

Mr. Fuglevand is a nationally recognized expert in the characterization of sediments and the design of remedial actions for cleanup of contaminated sediments. He is particularly known for remediation techniques to limit the redistribution of contaminated sediment during construction. In these subject areas, he has been invited to make presentations at national conferences and has been sought as an expert for testimony in environmental remediation cases in federal district and bankruptcy courts. His expert testimony has addressed sediment characterization, sediment remediation, remediation costs, and PRP cost allocation related to the EPA Superfund program.
