Alumni in the Spotlight

By: Kathy Gerhart ‘10

After graduating from WC with a BA in Environmental Studies, I was hired by Alpha Environmental Management Corporation in mid-June. It is a consulting company that focuses on the fields of environment, energy, and safety. My position is Environmental Analyst. My main duty is to perform storm water inspections at residential construction sites. These inspections are required as part of the NPDES permit which was put into place as part of the Clean Water Act. On site I check erosion and sediment controls to make sure that the site is not polluting local water ways.
