Who is Heather R. Good, LHG?

Heather developed a connection to hydrogeology during her undergraduate studies in central Texas, where she enjoyed exploring caves and snorkeling in spring-fed pools—features of the state’s vast karst aquifer system. Since then, Heather has gained over 12 years of experience consulting on hydrogeological and environmental issues. Her expertise is in navigating complex regulatory and technical issues to identify remediation solutions for difficult cleanup sites.

Heather has an affinity for tackling challenging problems—both technical and nontechnical—and has a proven track record of obtaining cleanup site closure under state regulations. She is skilled in multiparty stakeholder group and agency negotiations and advocates for solutions that meet her clients’ needs. She has experience working with attorney, local government, and private industry clients on projects located primarily in the Pacific Northwest and is familiar with the project funding requirements of both historical insurance policies and state and federal grants.

Away from the office, Heather enjoys exploring with her two children and pursuing her interests in mountain biking, home improvement projects, and playing the violin.
