Galen O’Toole is a project manager and the lead environmental engineer at Intrinsyx Environmental—managing and designing endophyte-assisted phytoremediation projects for contaminated soil, groundwater, wastewater, and surface water. Projects include Superfunds, military sites, redevelopment projects, oil and gas sites, stormwater, industrial and municipal wastewaters, and in-situ remediation of surface waters.He holds a Master of Science degree in Environmental Systems Engineering from California Polytechnic University—Humboldt.
He has over 7 years of experience as a project manager and more than 4 years of experience designing engineered natural treatment systems for environmental remediation, water reuse, and wastewater treatment. Previously, he worked for 5+ years in the water reuse sector managing projects, designing, developing, and evaluating novel water treatment technologies in potable reuse, wastewater, desalination, and salinity-gradient energy production. His goal is to continue developing regenerative, ecology-based solutions for benefitting public health, access to clean water, environmental restoration, and climate change mitigation.
Galen has recently presented to AEHS-West and at Battelle Bioremediation regarding the advances in enhanced phytoremediation.
