Greg Maitland brings his 25-years’ experience in environmental remediation and ecological restoration to you with Maitland Environmental Consulting.  Greg started his career in 1995 working nationwide as a heavy equipment operator on US Government sites including those operated by the US Air Force, US Army and the Naval Facilities Command among many others.  This work consisted of both base operations and base reallocation activities.  Scopes of work under these types of projects gave Greg a first hand, intimate understanding of cleanup and remedial activities.  Projects included work on sites contaminated with radioactive isotopes, chlorinated solvents, fuels, ordnance as well as numerous other chemical contaminants.

Greg was active in cleanup operation work at Norton AFB, Castle AFB, Edwards AFB and Travis AFB in the western United States.  In the east he was active at numerous Superfund sites and federal facilities such as Picatinny Army Arsenal and General Services Administration depots.  His work through the years brought him to federal facilities nationwide performing work under contracts through multiple agencies.  Greg gained valuable experience in contracting public sector projects and encountered unique cleanup scenarios every day in the field.
 
In the late 90s Greg transitioned into management first acting as a field Superintendent managing scopes-of-work in the field then taking on a project management role.  His work through the first decade of the 21st century focused on geotechnical remediation of both private and public sector sites, again nationwide.  During this phase of his career Greg became intimately familiar with soil and groundwater remediation techniques including the installation of slurry walls for groundwater control or collection, soil mixing and amending, permeable reactive barrier installation as well as other specialty underground techniques.
 
This phase of experience also exposed Greg to the field of geotechnical and ecological improvement.  He managed the installation of several passive remediation systems while working on mine reclamation projects.  These projects utilize constructed wetlands to mitigate metal contamination left behind as a result of strip-mining operations.

Greg managed the construction of one of the largest bird and wildlife sanctuaries in the US.  This installation, at Maryland's Hart-Miller Island hosts not only wildlife but ecologically minded guests as well.  The facility is located in the Chesapeake Bay outside Baltimore and plays host to an exceptionally successful wildlife habitat. The facility is known throughout the area as a sanctuary where visitors can witness wildlife in their natural habitat.  Maryland’s web page states; “Hart-Miller Island has become a haven for boaters in the northern Chesapeake Bay, providing the public opportunities to encounter many different species of plants, insects and wildlife”.  Read more about it here:  https://dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/pages/central/hartmiller.aspx.
 
In 2015 Greg took on the role of General Manager for a leading environmental firm in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky.  This work exposed him to emergency response operations as well as industrial cleanup and environmental support.  This valuable experience has allowed Greg to understand the challenges of environmental compliance in the manufacturing and industrial communities.  He maintains strong relationships with both regulatory and contracting personnel and can provide the most equitable and efficient solutions to your business or property.
 
With the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, Greg saw the opportunity to branch out and offer consulting and educational services to clients nationwide.  It is the intent of Maitland Environmental Consulting to provide equitable solutions to environmental challenges.  It is Greg's vision to enable his customers with an understanding of how to navigate through these challenges in the most efficient and economical way possible.
