NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EnviroScience, Inc. has opened a Nashville, Tennessee office and has hired local employees with extensive chemistry and toxicology backgrounds. The new office will bring additional capabilities of ecological damage assessments and HAZMAT cleanup solutions to the business. In addition, the office is expected to greatly expand EnviroScience's key business area of biological monitoring throughout the Southern U.S.
"We're very excited about the growth opportunities these experienced employees bring to our company's capabilities," said Martin A. Hilovsky, President of EnviroScience, Inc. "Our new employees have an extensive amount of valuable experience in environmental chemistry and HAZMAT management. With our new Nashville office, we're able to expand our capabilities in ecological response and extend our reach to the Southern U.S."
An extensive knowledge in industrial accident cleanups enables the Nashville group to quickly identify spilled or released chemicals in the environment, quantify and dispose of spills, and determine the toxicity effect on the environment.
The Nashville office also implements ecological damage assessments, by reviewing historical environmental data. They can then identify the level of toxicity biologically and chemically determine the company of origin.
Randall Woodlee joins the company as the Field Analytical Chemist and holds over 20 years of valuable experience and extensive knowledge of field work. Roger Street has been brought in as Biologist and Aquatic Toxicologist, with more than 10 years of experience in the environmental sciences and compliance assistance. These new positions expand EnviroScience's capabilities in the areas of HAZMAT cleanup solutions and ecological damage assessments.
"During an industrial fire involving hazardous chemicals, those chemicals may survive the fire but frequently the containers and labels don't," said Randall Woodlee. "Being able to quickly identify the type of chemicals and the quantity of the spill is imperative in containing the damage."
Biologist David Czayka has been promoted from the Stow, Ohio headquarters to manage the Nashville office. Czayka has been an employee of EnviroScience for eight years and has previously worked alongside Woodlee and Street on several of the nation's worst environmental incidents. Czayka's knowledge of the company's key services and personnel, as well as his strong ecological background will help springboard EnviroScience's services into the South.
Ohio was the first state to implement biological criteria for water quality standards, a process that looks at the types and assemblages of organisms present in a given environment, such as fish and insects to determine water quality. EnviroScience has 20 years experience working with Ohio water standards and is poised to lead the country as other states and the Federal government adopts the standards.
The expansion of capabilities will also help support a five-year $37 million EPA contract awarded to EnviroScience this past March.
The Nashville office is located at 1722 General George Patton Drive, Suite B100, Brentwood, Tennessee.
