Scott Teed is a Senior Scientist with Intrinsik Corp. He has 25 years of technical and scientific experience in ecological risk assessment (ERA) including contaminated sites and crop protection products in both Canada and the United States. He has led ERAs for the registration and re-registration of active ingredients under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). He has conducted numerous endangered species risk assessments with consideration of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) at the single species (e.g., lawsuit – California Red-Legged Frog) and national level (National Endangered Species Risk Assessments) on behalf of many registrants.
Scott has conducted ecological risk assessments on numerous contaminated sites in the United States and Canada. Two recent examples include his role as ecological risk assessment lead for a former Imperial Oil Refinery site in Calgary, Alberta and a former wide-area railway site for the Fort Williams First Nation in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Scott was also involved in the preparation of ecological risk assessments for the Sudbury Area Wide Risk Assessment (SARA), Brunswick Mines (Xstrata Inc.), Housatonic River, MA and the Calcasieu Estuary, LA, CERCLA (Superfund) sites (U.S. EPA) among others. Scott is also an expert in the development and application of environmental quality guidelines having been the author (or contributing author) of many soil and water quality guidelines for the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) (e.g., Copper, Barium, Ammonia, Ethylene Glycol and others), and for other jurisdictions/organizations (e.g., BC/Ontario, Water Environment Research Foundation). He worked for one year with the Transport of Dangerous Goods Directorate, Transport Canada and for six years with Environment Canada. Scott was with the Cadmus Group for six years and subsequently joined Intrinsik Corp., as a risk assessor in March 2004.
- He organized and helped facilitate a CropLife America (CLA) workshop on developing a Framework to conduct National ESRA’s.
- He also helped coordinate registrant responses to the EPA’s organophosphate national ESRA case studies including errors and omissions, active specific comments, and preparation of a problem formulation and screening-level risk assessment for submission to the Agency.
- He led the development of a probabilistic ERA for chlorpyrifos for the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
- Successfully provided technical courses to clients (e.g. Registrants, Environment Canada) on ecological risk assessment methods, tools, and approaches.
- Expertise in the application of spatially explicit techniques used in support of risk assessments, specifically the use of geographic information systems (GIS) in site characterization and exposure estimations (i.e. interpolation). For example, he has utilized GIS approaches to identify habitat, and develop potential exposure models for listed species.
- Significant experience with the QA/QC of the tissue residue and environmental media data and development of database applications and models.
