Prior to EPA, Phil spent 11 years (2000 – 2011) with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in their Agreement State program working on licensing, inspection and incident response. His main focus was on uranium recovery, industrial uses of byproduct materials and TENORM. Phil also spent 11 years working with ORAU/ORISE/ORNL (1989-2000) in Grand Junction, CO working on uranium mill tailings cleanups and a variety of projects supporting DOE D&D projects from Cape Cod to Johnston Atoll. He started his radiological career working on cleanups of early Superfund and uranium mill tailings sites with a cleanup contractor and eventually picked up a survey meter with Bendix Field Engineering in Grand Junction during the early days of the UMTRCA project (1983 – 1985).
