William Wimberly is a licensed geologist and well driller who has spent his career working in the environmental, geological, and drilling industries.  He began his career as a regulator with the State of South Carolina overseeing RCRA/hazardous waste groundwater assessment and remediation. He also assisted in writing the state’s Underground Storage Tank Regulations while employed as manager of that program.

After leaving the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental (SCDHEC), he started an environmental services company that specialized in hydrostatic testing of underground tanks and piping systems, groundwater assessment/remediation, and environmental drilling and construction. After building a very successful and profitable company through the 1990’s, it was sold in 2000. William then owned a water well drilling company in the early 2000s and subsequently has worked independently as a contract geologist and project manager. He has worked all over the United States and internationally on diverse and interesting assignments, some of which are detailed on his resume, which can be accessed on this site.
