Dr. Mark J. Benotti is a multidisciplinary environmental chemist with 20 years of experience pertaining to projects focused on the occurrence, fate and transport, source attribution, impacts, and treatment strategies of/for environmental contaminants in the environment. He has managed or served as a technical advisor on projects in the United States and abroad involving per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), petroleum hydrocarbons, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, chlorinated solvents, 1,4-dioxane, and perchlorate. His work has included study design and characterization of sites impacted by industrial activities, firefighting training practices, wastewater and/or combined sewer overflows (CSOs), water reuse facilities/settings, sediment remediation sites, and other investigations of contaminated waters and sediments in complex, urbanized and/or industrialized environments. He has worked closely with risk assessors and toxicologists to incorporate aspects of environmental or human risk into interpretations of contaminant chemistry and behavior and with engineers to determine most appropriate water treatment strategies. As a scientist who has spent almost two decades working in environmental analytical chemistry laboratories, Dr. Benotti possesses a “cradle-to-grave” understanding of how to generate and interpret defensible data, and he has published over 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters, and reports pertaining his research and project work.
