Raynham, MA— Kevin J. Beaulieu, environmental practice leader and senior Project Manager for the Raynham, MA office of Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. has been appointed Clerk of the LSP Association (LSPA), an organization representing nearly 1,000 Licensed Site Professionals (LSPs) and other environmental professionals involved with hazardous waste site cleanup in Massachusetts.
Mr. Beaulieu currently serves as an Executive Team member of the LSPA Board of Directors, which is active in the development of regulatory policy, delivery of continuing education courses and other professional development for LSPs, and advancement of the profession.
Mr. Beaulieu, a native of Fitchburg, MA holds an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Syracuse University. He is a past Chairman of the LSPA Technical Practices Committee and is currently a member of the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School Advisory Committee and Save Bristol Harbor Board of Directors.
A registered LSP in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Mr. Beaulieu has 20 years of experience in compliance strategy development, environmental impact assessments, hazardous waste site assessments, and remedial system design. His experience includes due diligence environmental liability assessments, state funded gas station clean-ups, brownfields program remediation projects for historic chlorinated solvent and heavy metals releases and residential heating oil releases.
Founded in 1993, the LSPA is the non-profit, professional society for Licensed Site Professionals (LSPs, who are licensed by the Commonwealth), and other hazardous waste site cleanup professionals (attorneys, laboratory personnel, contractors, etc.) involved in the management of hazardous waste sites in Massachusetts. Through education and information, the LSPA works to support its nearly 1,000 members to achieve and maintain high standards of practice in overseeing the assessment and remediation of hazardous waste disposal sites.
Massachusetts was the first state in the nation to privatize the process for investigating and cleaning up hazardous waste sites, and in so doing greatly increased the number of properties, called Brownfields, made available for reuse and redevelopment. On average, only 22 sites a year reached regulatory closure between 1983 and 1993; since 1993, when the privatized system was implemented, LSPs have achieved that status for over 25,000 sites.
Other LSPA Board members appointed as officers are:
• President – Cole Worthy, LSP, Vice President and Senior Project Manager, Haley & Aldrich, Inc. of Boston, MA
• Treasurer – Susan Chapnick, President and Principal Scientist, New Environmental Horizons, Inc. of Arlington, MA
• President-Elect – Matt Hackman, PE, LSP, President of Matthew E. Hackman, P.E., CHMM, Inc. of Warwick, RI
