Leed Environmental, Inc.




Leed Environmental, Inc. is a specialized environmental management company whose core business is providing project coordination, project management, and technical advisory services for Superfund sites involving multi-party steering committees. More than 95% of the work historically performed by Leed Environmental, Inc. since it was founded in 1993 has involved project coordination services for multi-party Steering Committees or individual companies responsible for completing remedial investigations, feasibility studies, remedial designs, removal and remedial activities, operation and maintenance activities, and long-term monitoring activities for Superfund sites located throughout the United States. Leed Environmental, Inc. also has similar extensive experience for Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste sites, brownfields sites, and other contaminated properties.


Mr. Jeffrey A. Leed, the founder and President of Leed Environmental, Inc., performs project coordination and management services on a day-to-day basis for Leed Environmental, Inc.'s clients. Since 1979, he has accumulated more than 36 years of environmental project coordination, management, and consulting experience. Mr. Leed has been involved in all facets of Superfund site activities and RCRA corrective action activities and has worked extensively on behalf of his clients (frequently multi-party steering committees) with representatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), numerous state regulatory agencies, mayors and local agencies, private residents, and citizen's groups.


Mr. Leed has been involved in Superfund site project coordination activities since the time that President Jimmy Carter signed the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, or Superfund) in 1980. Mr. Leed was involved, and performed technical advisory, project management, and project coordination services as part of one of the first privately funded Superfund remedial actions, a cleanup of lead-containing soil from hundreds of residential properties in a low-income section of Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Leed founded Leed Environmental, Inc. in 1993 to provide project coordination and management services to a diverse group of industries, businesses, and property owners involved in Superfund site activities. At 14 Superfund sites and 2 corrective action properties, Mr. Leed has served for periods frequently exceeding 10 years as the project coordinator for multi-party steering committees and individual clients. In this capacity, Mr. Leed has performed a wide range of administrative, management, and project coordination tasks. He has been involved in various types of Superfund site remedial investigations and cleanups, has frequently been requested to perform community relations activities, and has been responsible for day-to-day contacts and communications with the technical and legal staffs of the steering committees, with the steering committee's environmental consultants and remedial contractors, and with federal, state, and local regulatory agencies.
