William “Bill” Weinlein, a Principal at Ensolum, is a licensed Professional Geoscientist in Texas and Louisiana with nearly a decade of practice in environmental consulting. A native northeasterner, Bill holds a B.S./certification from Rutgers University in Geology, Marine Science and Environmental Geomatics. Following completion of a M.S. at Texas A&M University in Geological Oceanography, he and his family settled west of Houston to pursue opportunities both personally and professionally.
Bill’s focus across multiple disciplines most notably includes site investigation, remediation, air/water/waste compliance, pre/post acquisition due diligence, and pipeline/asset modification and construction. His work across the Gulf Coast region, throughout Texas and beyond has been rooted in high quality field work, management and communication tailored to client’s needs. Bill has been involved with numerous emergency response efforts for small and large volume spills of petroleum hydrocarbons and refined products, brine/produced water, inadvertent return material, and various other contaminants. As a result, he has worked alongside clients with property owners, stakeholders and regulators from the EPA, TCEQ, RRC, TxDOT, LDEQ, LDNR, TDSHS and local municipalities/districts. These collaborations have succeeded to achieve project objectives ranging from spill closure approval and restrictive covenants to permit amendments and management plans. Fostering strong dialogue with clients, stakeholders and regulators has been key for him in optimizing solutions that have not only been protective of human health and the environment but also cost effective and defensible. In addition to these prime services, Bill and his team have supported clients’ needs in both greenfield and brownfield scenarios relating to storm water, site inspections, safety, training, contingency planning, informal auditing, suspect asbestos containing material/lead based paint surveys/abatement and natural disasters.
