CHARLES (PONY) ELLINGSON - Hydrogeologist to ECAC
I am a State licensed hydrogeologist recently added to the ECAC technical review team. I will advise ECAC on how groundwater occurs and moves below the site and as it discharges to the surface waters. I will also advise on hydraulic aspects of proposed remediation methods and calculations.
I have degrees in geology and hydrology, focusing on groundwater. I have worked in groundwater consulting since leaving school in 1980, and have been in the Puget Sound area since 1983. I am co-founder and a principal at Pacific Groundwater Group.
I have led numerous groundwater contamination projects, including remedial investigations, feasibility studies, and remedial actions. I am familiar with groundwater and contaminant behavior in tidal environments and the types of soils encountered at UNOCAL-Edmonds. I have modeled groundwater using the most popular models in use today.
My other areas of professional interest include infiltration of stormwater and reclaimed water, development of groundwater supplies through permitting and drilling of wells, and the hydrologic effects of land use change.
