As an environmental engineer-in-training, Strong is responsible for interpreting criteria for modeling municipal water well systems and water protection plans.
Strong has experience with environmental site assessments and storm water pollution prevention plans. He is involved in computer modeling, environmental review, and conducting field investigations. He is also responsible for general inspection/observation, as well as assisting other engineers in completing designated tasks.
