Chris White, M.S., Principal, Water Quality Specialist
With sadness, we report that Chris White passed away in December 2013. Chris White had over 22 years of consulting experience and produced many bucket loads of fine reports (see below). He managed field research to resolve soil salinity problems and reduce delivery of salts, nutrients and pesticides to sensitive habitats. He focused on control of nitrogen and pesticides from confined animal areas, leachfields, golf courses and on design of wetlands of vernal pools.
