Summary of Experience
Mr. Paul is an Executive Vice President of EcolSciences, Inc. With more than 35 years of experience, he has managed and had technical responsibility for a full range of environmental, planning and engineering projects. In addition to supervisory responsibility for environmental assignments, his areas of specialization include: brownfields redevelopment and site remediation; environmental planning and analysis; permitting and regulatory compliance; site selection and facility location; and wetlands delineation and ecology.
For the past several years, Mr. Paul has been involved in the environmental issues associated with the redevelopment of "brownfield" sites. Examples include the supervision of the environmental investigations and development and implementation of the remedial action workplan for the redevelopment of a former 1,000,000 square foot industrial building in Hoboken, New Jersey; all environmental activities for the redevelopment of approximately 50 acres of former industrial land in The City of Perth Amboy; a 500 unit transit village in Secaucus, New Jersey being constructed on a former landfill; a mixed-use residential/retail project in Englewood, New Jersey; and a 600 acre former petroleum tank farm in Staten Island, New York which was under consideration for a major sports facility and is currently being evaluated for a 2 million square foot warehouse distribution center.
Mr. Paul's experience also includes issues related to freshwater and coastal wetlands, including wetland delineation, the assessment and quantification of wetlands functions and values, and the preparation and implementation of wetlands mitigation and mitigation banking projects. He has represented several clients before New Jersey's Wetlands Mitigation Council and negotiated the first monetary donation to the Mitigation Bank.
Mr. Paul began his career with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection as a Senior Environmental Specialist. In this capacity he helped establish review procedures under CAFRA (New Jersey's Coastal Area Facilities Review Act), reviewed applications and EIS's submitted under CAFRA and New Jersey's Wetlands Act, and conducted the required public hearings.
Mr. Paul has provided expert testimony before the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Meadowlands Commission, the Pinelands Commission, the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law, the Superior Court of New Jersey, the New York City Council and municipal boards throughout the State of New Jersey and in New York City. He has also lectured at numerous conferences and symposia on various environmental topics.
