"As always thanks for your help. If there was an award like an Oscar or something, I’d give it to you guys for professional vendor of the year and I mean that. I don’t know what I’d do without you guys being on top of everything we throw at you."

"The selection of sites was preceded by Shield completing a risk assessment and ranking for all 18 sites, including an ecological risk assessment completed by Shield. The Shield team, led by David Stoner with field work directed/completed by Danny Hefner, did an excellent job managing these RCRA sites to completion in a timely and cost-efficient manner."
