Practical Ideas Environmental Site Assessments







Angelo Lampousis, PhD

As a member of several professional societies and standards development organizations, Dr. Lampousis is connected to the use and value of technical standards. He served as a member of the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM International) subcommittee and task group responsible for developing the ASTM Standard E1527-13, Practice for Environmental Site assessments. Related classes that he developed for the Department of EAS at CCNY were noted by ASTM and the US Environmental Protection Agency, resulting in close collaboration with these organizations in the areas of curriculum development and internship opportunities (see article in the January/February 2012 issue of ASTM’s Standardization News).

About the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at CCNY

Since 2010, the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences of City College of New York (CCNY) has successfully implemented a two-semester sequence course entitled Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments. From the very beginning of this effort, a total of ten standards per semester were used as mandatory reference material. Based on this experience, several practical ideas emerge as successful means of integrating standards into an academic curriculum.
