"He (Phil Odenkirk) has the technical knowledge and experience to meet the needs of all our customers large or small. When I have questions, Phil will explain them in terms I can understand and relate to."

- Mr. David Conrad, Vice President Champaign Springs, LLC


I have worked on numerous water supply and groundwater contamination projects with Phil Odenkirk of Santis Environmental over the past decade. Phil is an excellent groundwater consultant with a sound theoretical foundation in the fundamentals of groundwater and surface water hydrology. Phil's strength is his ability to readily solve practical groundwater and surface water problems. He excels in field related problems. Phil provides excellent client service, is always prompt and focused, and is able to maintain projects on time and budget. Moreover, Phil always has a positive attitude and is a pleasure to work with. I always enjoy teaming with Phil on a project.

Santis Environmental, Inc. (SANTIS) was formed to address a recognized need in the environmental consulting industry for high quality, confidential, results-oriented services provided at reasonable rates. SANTIS is focused on developing tailored environmentally friendly solutions while eliminating the heavy overhead and layered structure of many other environmental consulting firms. Rachel and Phil Odenkirk started this company to assist their clients in a more effective and personal manner. Both Rachel and Phil achieved their Bachelor of Science in Geology from Ball State University in 1993 and continued their studies as graduate students at Western Michigan University. Phil achieved his Masters of Science degree in Geology from Western Michigan University in 1996. They went on to work with some of the top environmental consulting geotechnical firms in Arizona, Michigan, and Indiana. We have worked at both state and federal environmental sites around the U.S. This varied experience has provided a great foundation to develop Santis Environmental, Inc.

What's with the name?

We chose the name SANTIS after visiting the eastern Appenzell Alps region of Switzerland. The Santis is the highest mountain in the area and its name in French means “health”. Our goal is to consistently provide our clients with the utmost technically sound environmental assistance in order to preserve the beautiful natural conditions of the earth. We feel that keeping a beautiful setting like the Santis Mountain in the forefront of our business, we can all aspire to preserve and better the world’s natural setting and health.
