Travis M. Bailey recently joined the Marshall University staff as the
environmental specialist in the Health and Safety Department, according to Brian
Carrico, director of health and safety.
Bailey, a native of Eleanor, W.Va., is a two-time graduate of Marshall, having earned a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and a master’s degree in biology. He has served as an adjunct faculty member for the past three years teaching microbiology, an endeavor he plans to continue.
Previously, Bailey worked 10 years at the Huntington Sanitary Board, beginning his career as a pretreatment analyst which involved monitoring the industrial facilities in the Huntington area.
He later was promoted to the Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) coordinator position. As CSO coordinator, Bailey was involved in getting a Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) approved by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).
He will be overseeing Marshall’s recently acquired Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit issued by the WVDEP. The permit requires Marshall to reduce the amount of storm water and/or pollutants discharged from its property. He also will be actively involved in educating the students, staff and faculty; mapping; inspections; and construction.
