Mr. Uhl began his career in water supply development and management in Central India where he initiated a water development project for the Lutheran Church at the age of 25. This project evolved into an organization with over 50 employees and provided a full service approach to water supply development from the siting of production wells utilizing geophysics and remote sensing applications to well repairs and drinking water quality evaluation. The project installed over 3,000 wells in the hard rock regions of central and southern India and provided a training ground for other projects in the region including UNICEF – WES.
Since that time, Mr. Uhl has specialized in the exploration, development, protection and management of water resources for public, industrial and agricultural uses and in the investigation and remediation of soil, groundwater, and surface water contamination incidence. He has investigated and characterized hundreds of industrial sites, large municipal landfills, interstate petroleum and gas pipelines and formulated monitoring and remedial strategies with regulatory authorities. While with Geraghty & Miller, Inc. he led a 2-year project that culminated in the preparation of the Underground Injection Control (UIC) regulations for the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
At Malcolm Pirnie, Inc., an international civil engineering firm, he managed the firm’s Groundwater Group. In 1984, he opened and managed a New Jersey office for Geraghty & Miller, Inc., a highly respected groundwater and environmental engineering consulting firm. In 1991, he started his own consulting practice that provides water and environmental consulting to industry, municipalities, international governments, consulting firms and legal clients on all projects with water and/or environmental components. He has worked extensively in the United States, southern and eastern Africa, the Philippines, and India, and in 10 other countries on short-term assignments. He has managed and directed many large water-supply development, management, planning, and protection projects in the United States and abroad.
He has a seasoned, field-based background that is invaluable for detailed analysis of groundwater systems as a basis for sustainability/recharge evaluations and optimal groundwater systems management. Mr. Uhl has taught graduate level courses in Hydrogeology at the University of Maryland, the University of Akola in India, and at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, New Jersey. He has given many presentations at seminars, international conferences, universities, and for corporate forums.
