After five years in the environmental consulting industry, Dan joined the USGS in 2006 and currently works with the Water Quality Observations Program (QWOP) on the Discrete Water-Quality Team.
Dan currently manages the QA/QC of the discrete water quality network. Among his responsibilities are to oversee the review of laboratory data, develop efficient yet thorough strategies for timely release of approved data, and communicate with State and Federal laboratories. Dan also manages real time continuous-record water quality monitoring installations, manages the deep well pumping and sampling of the Ground Water Quality network, and assists in the ULCT Microplastics Synoptic. During his time as an environmental consultant, Dan was involved in site remediation activities including the operation and management of groundwater/soil treatment systems, well installation, borehole logging, Phase I investigations, and groundwater sampling. Since starting with the USGS, Dan has had experience working with NAWQA, TMDL, NAWC, SOD monitoring, suspended sediment collection, electrofishing and other ecology programs, educational outreach, Hurricane related reconnaissance and sampling, groundwater sampling, and continuous monitor design and installation.
