Welcome to the Hargis Blog

Welcome to the Hargis blog.

There are plenty of choices in the consulting industry and no shortage when it comes to opinions, resources, and information.  You want convenient access to content you can trust from experienced environmental consultants.

The staff at Hargis is excited to launch this blog for that purpose.  We will tackle hydrogeology and environmental remediation issues most pertinent to your industry- your company- your job- with same integrity and expertise you’ve come to rely on.

Since 1979, I’ve worked with hundreds of Environmental Managers on thousands of projects.  They all have one thing in common. Environmental Managers struggle to tackle complex liabilities with limited resources– not enough time in the day, scientists on staff, or money in the budget. 

This blog aims to help environmental managers keep up with the changing environmental regulatory landscape and competing environmental remediation issues so they can balance cost, risk, and remediation approach to mitigate long-term environmental liabilities.
