We Dig This Stuff

Soil Science is awesome! You have to be a certain type of person to “dig” soils. Anyone who willingly crawls through briars and brush, in August in overalls and in humid, 90 degree weather has to enjoy their work. Soils are uniquely fascinating, fun and bridge a variety of scientific disciplines: earth science, geology, geography, biology, chemistry, physics and math. Every site, every hole and every project is different.

The most common question we hear is, “We’ve never had to do this, what happens next, what does this mean?” You are not alone. The steps you have to go through during an environmental investigation can be confusing. It’s our job to provide the consulting service you need to guide you through the investigation process, obtain the necessary documents, approvals and answers.

Our Story

Founder, Bill Gangloff (Dr. Dirt or Dr. Bill), began his soil science career as a student at the University of Delaware in the early 1990s. After receiving his MS in Plant and Soil Sciences, he worked for several years with the university and the Delaware Geological Survey on soils and water quality projects. A trip out west led to a 7-year career with Colorado State University. Projects in Colorado included soil sampling and analysis, crop and soil management, spatial modeling and soil management zone mapping. He completed his PhD in Soil Science and returned to the east coast in 2004. After returning, he briefly worked with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control before moving into the private sector.

In addition to his consulting efforts, Dr. Gangloff also teaches courses in soils and environmental science. He serves and has served on several professional boards including the Delaware Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association, the Delaware DNREC Site Interpretation Advisory Council, and the Onsite Systems Advisory Board.
