ENTACT Associate Receives Early Career Award from Penn State

ENTACT Project Director Brady Bonsted recently returned to his alma mater, Penn State University, to receive the Penn State College of Engineering Early Career Award. This award recognizes engineering alumni who are leaders in their profession, community, and involvement with Penn State.  After receiving the award Brady had this to say “I am humbled to receive such an accolade, but even more honored to be a part of such an impressive cohort of young leaders. I am fortunate to have been exposed to great challenges and opportunities to get to this point, and look forward to continuing to push forward. Thanks to ENTACT, LLC for the platform for growth and success, and my family for their continued support! Now, back to work!”

ENTACT Presents at 2022 Battelle Chlorinated Compounds Conference

The ENTACT team recently attended the 12th International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, held May 22-26 in Palm Springs, California. ENTACT Project Director Mark Fleri presented a poster on the regulatory overview, design and implementation of the Zone A drum removal action at the Pasco Sanitary Landfill NPL Site. Congratulations to Mark on a successful presentation!

Summer Safety Tip: Get Acclimatized

During hot summer weather, hydration alone cannot compensate for a lack of acclimatization – the process of adjusting to different temperatures and climate conditions. In the field, ENTACT staff prevents developing heat illness by gradually increasing their temperature exposure over seven to 14 days. Read more about our safety commitment here.

Case Study: Coal Ash Storage Reservoir High-Hazard Dam Modification

ENTACT Project Director Thad Penuel recently contributed to a case study on the coal ash storage reservoir closure and modification of a high-hazard Dam. The case study was presented both at the 2022 USSD Annual Conference on April 11-14 in San Diego, California, and the 2022 World of Coal Ash on May 16-19 in Covington, Kentucky. The expanded abstract provided design and construction information for the coal ash storage reservoir, a 300-acre, valley fill type reservoir constructed by building an approximately 130-foot tall dam across a valley. Read the full case study here.

Predicting Precipitation with Technology

As weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable and present a larger risk to project production and success, it’s important to prepare using scientific and mathematically backed information. ENTACT uses NOAA’s Precipitation Frequency Data Server (PFDS) to learn the expected precipitation volume for 2-, 10-, 25- and 100-year storms over 60 days. Check out the PFDS tool.
