Working in the environmental field since 1980, Ken has experience
in the areas of property investigation and remediation, environmental permitting, environmental review and planning, and regulatory
and policy development. Since 1989, he has focused on issues related to the investigation, cleanup, and reuse of contaminated
properties. Before becoming one of the founding partners of Landmark Environmental, LLC in 2000, Ken was a Vice-President
at Barr Engineering Company. Ken also previously worked at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency from 1981 to 1996, where
his last position was supervisor of the Voluntary Investigation & Cleanup Program. His in-depth and practical knowledge
of technical, policy, funding, and liability issues enable him to provide an insider's perspective on a range of regulatory
issues associated with brownfield redevelopment, property transactions, and voluntary investigations and cleanups.
In his current role at Landmark, Ken provides project-specific advice and strategies to clients who buy, develop, sell,

Jessica has been working in the environmental industry
since 1996. As the project scientist for large brownfields redevelopment projects in the Twin Cities, her tasks include preparing
Site Safety Plans; overseeing Phase II environmental investigations; reviewing and reducing laboratory analytical data and
creating data tables that compare data to Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) regulatory screening criteria; mapping
results with Geographic Information Systems to identify response actions to be dealt with during redevelopment and construction
activities; utilizing hot spot data to identify appropriate remedy; preparing Response Action Plans, Contingency Plans, and
Response Action Implementation Reports for approval by the MPCA. Since becoming Vice President at Landmark, she has managed
these functions on numerous projects including: an 8-acre former Superfund site, and the 44-acre property located at I-35W
and I-494 where she conducted a Phase I and a Phase II subsurface geoprobe investigation on a site comprised of 60 homes and
commercial/industrial businesses and dealt with reluctant landowners involved in eminent domain proceedings with the city.
She focuses on environmental investigations and remediation work related to property transactions; most involve
the MPCA voluntary investigation and cleanup program. She takes the lead on Phase I Environmental Site Assessments.

Working in the environmental field since
1993, Jerry Mullin has years of experience as a project geologist implementing field investigations and remedial actions for
contaminated sites and redevelopment projects. He manages environmental issues during brownfield site redevelopment. He has
conducted soil, groundwater, and air quality investigations and managed soil excavation and disposal at brownfield sites with
previous land uses such as scrap yards, metal plating, foundries, gas stations, printing shops, dry cleaning, rail yards,
and pesticide manufacturing. Recently, he was project geologist for the investigation and remediation of a 30-acre former
railroad property, and managed the environmental investigation and remediation of a former drycleaning operation where PCE-contaminated
perched groundwater is providing a source of vapor migration into a strip mall building; he conducted the environmental investigation,
delineated off-site groundwater contamination, and installed a soil vapor extraction system (SVE). A plume of contamination
extends off the former drycleaning property in the direction of a pond approximately 1200 feet west. The SVE controls movement
of contaminants in saturated soil.
Jerry has conducted environmental investigations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa,
Michigan, Montana, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Alabama, Kansas, Illinois, Arizona, and Oklahoma; and conducted surface
water compliance monitoring at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

including soil and groundwater investigations using Geoprobe and test-trenching techniques at an automobile sales facility
in Hopkins, Minnesota and a former railroad depot property in Red Wing, Minnesota and an office complex in Hopkins. Eric also
assisted in the preparation of Phase II investigation reports for each project. Eric has also provided assistance in the assessment
and cleanup of meth labs.
Eric has worked on some significant remediation sites including a property that was impacted
with petroleum at 100 feet below ground surface, and began to draw in an acid vapor plume after the initial remediation system
began operations. This involved operating and maintaining five separate pollution devices including; a CatOx„µ
unit for thermal destruction of gas stream vapors, a soil vapor extraction to removed impacted vapor/capillary water in the
vadose zone, and an air sparge system to insert high-pressure ambient air into the saturated area adjacent to a major navigable
Eric provided lead construction oversight and final cover construction and closure process for two landfills
in Wright County, MN. This included over 200 acres of impacted land. This was done under the MPCA landfill closure plan.
