Decade 1 occurs from 1986 through 1995. During this time, QRI primarily worked for Industry (Oil, Petrochemical & Utilities) and Large Consultants performing environmental consulting services to remove impoundments and solve groundwater issues by performing Environmental Sequence Stratigraphy (ESS) utilizing technology that QRI had developed and invented: HTAS™ (1986) & Pulser™ (1987). QRI also founded their Drilling Section in 1987 when Fonda Lindfors New became the first registered woman driller in the State of LA. The Recession of 1990 did not impact QRI in a negative way because we were very engaged in closing Texaco sludge impoundments prior to the implementation of new waste regulations.
