GEI has several Massachusetts Licensed Site Professional (LSPs) and Connecticut Licensed Environmental Professionals (LEPs) on staff. As one of the first firms in New England to become involved in environmental investigations and remediation, we have a long history and have developed solid working relationships with the state and federal environmental agency staff in New England. Our knowledge of policies and procedures has allowed us to effectively negotiate with the regulatory agencies on our clients' behalf and to move projects forward with minimal delay.
We have provided LSP and LEP services to numerous public sector agencies, including the City of Boston, Department of Neighborhood Development; Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport); Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC); Massachusetts Turnpike Authority (MassPike); the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) (formerly the Metropolitan District Commission [MDC]); New Hampshire Department of Transportation; and the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
We collaborate with clients to address all notification, investigative and remediation requirements through required oversight and approval in accordance with the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP) (310 CMR 40.0000) and Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) Sections 22a-133 (Voluntary Remediation Program), 22a-134 (Property Transfer Act), 22a-133k (Remediation Standards Regulations), and Public Act 98-134 (Significant Environmental Hazards). We consider it our responsibility to keep track of each regulatory submittal for our clients and ensure that all submittals to the regulatory agencies are both timely and administratively complete. We can work cooperatively with in-house staff in the preparation and submittal of regulatory agency tracking documents, up to and including site characterization activities, the development of remedial action plans, and implementation of remedial measures.
