I am very excited and proud to announce that my peer reviewed technical article and work regarding opioid contamination titled, Establishing Standards for the Assessment and Decontamination Cleanup of Opioid Contaminated Properties was accepted and recently published.
This article presents a case study involving the assessment and cleanup of a residence used to receive illegal shipments of the powerful opioids (including fentanyl and carfentanil) and where illicit drugs were produced, handled, and distributed.  The resultant work on this and similar cases involving these highly dangerous and toxic drugs, led to the establishment of key legislation in California requiring the assessment and cleanup of sites contaminated with illicit drug residues.  These efforts involved years technical work and legislative advocacy has been published as a feature article within a special edition of New Solutions, a Journal of Environmental and Occupational Health Policy and is the result of years of professional work efforts and advocacy.
