Porewater Solutions will bring in world-renowned experts to help with projects on an as-needed basis, including university professors, remediation contractors, and other consultants.

Dr. John Holbrook, Professor at Texas Christian University

John Holbrook is a Professor in the School of Geology, Energy and the Environment and the Energy Institute at Texas Christian University. He previously served as a Professor at University of Texas at Arlington and Southeast Missouri State University. His research interests are field oriented, focusing mostly on both modern and ancient fluvial systems and physical stratigraphy. Current interests include controls on permeability trends and connectivity of flow paths in sediments, quantifying fundamental sedimentary processes at small and large scales, preservation of modern processes in the stratigraphic record, and tectonic and climatic impact on rivers. He applies his research widely across petroleum, geothermal, and environmental issues and is well published and well cited in each of these fields. He gained his B.S. at the University of Kentucky, his M.S. at the University of New Mexico, and his Ph.D. at Indiana University, all in Geology.

  He chairs the NSF Research Coordination Network for research in geothermal energy from sedimentary basins. He has served on several committees at SEPM, GSA, and AAPG. He is a past member of GSA Council, past Chair of the GSA Sedimentary Geology Section, and is a GSA Fellow. He has served SEPM on SEPM Council and as President of Gulf Coast and Mid-Continent section, and he teaches short courses and serves/chairs committees for AAPG. He served as vice chair on the Board of GeologistRegistration in Missouri.


Dr. Edward McBean, Professor, Canada Chair in Water Supply Security, and Assistant Dean at the University of Guelph
Ed McBean is a Canada Research Chair in Water Supply Security in the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph. In that context, he relies upon statistical interpretation of data, fate and transport of chemicals and pathogens in the environment, and risk assessment/ management, to determine how features of water supply risk may arise. Hence, there are dimensions of a number of features including climate change and fate and transport modeling as applied to water resources phenomena. In addition to the above, Ed also has extensive experience in waste management, and greenhouse gas emissions as contributory to global climate change.
