Arun introduced Dr. Nizar Zyoud who happens to be the father of our Oakbotics team Captain.  This scientist deals with risk assessment of environmental sites. He addresses the needs of property owners, buyers, investors and financial institutions.  The need for environment assessment is paramount. There are numerous instances of contamination in landfills and other locations. Risk reduction entails analysis and treatment of hazardous materials and groundwater. Remedial design and brownfields redevelopment are carried out. They proceed in two phases whereby records are reviewed, site visits are made, interview sessions are held culminating in evaluation and reporting. Likely places are railroads, gas stations, laundry businesses, agricultural lands and wherever mold prevails. Carcinogenic materials constitute the biggest environmental concern. President Doug thanked Nizar for his presentation and presented him with a Polio Certificate.
