About the LSPA

The LSP Association, founded in 1993, supports an aggressive agenda that protects the health and safety of Massachusetts' citizens while expediting the cleanup and reuse of contaminated properties: LSPs have closed up over 25,000 contaminated properties since 1993. LSPA members work with lawmakers, regulators, and other environmental professionals to revitalize older industrial neighborhoods through the redevelopment of "brownfield" sites.

The LSPA's mission is to:

  • Help members to achieve and maintain a standard of practice commensurate with their level of responsibility in overseeing the assessment and remediation of hazardous waste disposal sites
  • Serve as the voice of the membership in communicating with MassDEP and the LSP Board of Registration
  • Act as the responsible advocate for our membership with respect to regulations, policies, and practices that affect the LSP profession
  • Serve as an educational, informational and communications resource for members and the general public
  • Provide members with a forum for timely topics and professional issues; education programs; and technical and professional information
