Who is William Burris?

Mr. William K. Burris, P.G.
Environmental Restoration Program Manager
United States Air Force Civil Engineer Center

William Burris currently leads the Air Force program to address legacy groundwater and soil contamination resulting from military activity at Joint Base Andrews, Joint Base Anacostia Bolling, and associated Air Force properties. He also serves as part of the overall Air Force Civil Engineering Center’s environmental management team for all Air Force installations located within the Mid-Atlantic Region. He has previously worked in wide array of roles ranging from regulator to consultant to federal program manager on issues ranging from brownfields to national environmental policy act to military munitions and chemical weapons demilitarization. He possesses unique expertise on confluence of environmental issues and aviation. He maintains a Professional Geologist License in the state of Pennsylvania in a pathetic attempt to pretend he’s still an earth scientist and not just some government bureaucrat.
