Tom Mongan has been an independent consultant for 12 years and a principal team member for two major dose reconstruction studies. He directed the team evaluating environmental effects of mercury lost from the 24 million-pound inventory used for lithium isotope separation at the Oak Ridge Reservation for the State of Tennessee. He also managed the team determining plutonium releases from the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant, for the Colorado Department of Health. Tom has also reviewed conceptual design and operations modeling for decontamination and environmental restoration of the U.S. DOE nuclear reservation in Hanford, Washington. Prior to that he was the Project Manager of an alternatives analysis and site evaluation program for nuclear waste repositories that included: field studies and computer modeling of air, noise, visual, and hydrologic impacts of repository construction and operation; regional environmental and socioeconomic impact assessments; and preliminary engineering of four alternate rail routes through 40 miles of rough terrain in southern Utah.
