About the LSP Association

The LSPA is the non-profit association, founded in 1993, for Licensed Site Professionals (“LSPs”) and related practitioners. LSPs are the scientists, engineers, and public health specialists licensed by the Commonwealth to work on behalf of property owners, operators, and other involved parties to oversee the assessment and cleanup of oil and hazardous materials released to the environment. These sites include multi-acre urban brownfields, roadside spills, “mom and pop” gas stations and dry cleaners, and everything in between.

Our 800 members are LSPs and other consultants who work with institutional, non-profit, government, and private clients to remediate contaminated sites so these properties can be placed back into active and productive use. LSPs have brought over 40,000 contaminated properties into regulatory compliance since 1993.

The LSPA's mission is to support our membership in achieving and maintaining a high standard of practice in the assessment and remediation of sites in Massachusetts contaminated with oil and/or hazardous materials.  The LSPA provides technical, informational, educational, and communications resources to our membership, from early career professionals to experienced Licensed Site Professionals (LSPs). The LSPA also serves as an advocate in communicating with MassDEP, the LSP Board of Registration, and the state legislature, and as a resource to the general public.
