Langan's Jorge Berkowitz named to NJ's LSRP board

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has appointed Jorge Berkowitz, PhD, LSRP, to the state's Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board.

Berkowitz, a Senior Associate at Langan Engineering & Environmental Services, will join 12 other members of the Board established to enforce the code of conduct and professional standards required of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs).

Berkowitz’ appointment was also unanimously approved by the New Jersey State Senate Judiciary Committee.

A graduate of Rutgers University with a PhD in Environmental Science, Berkowitz has more than 35 years of experience in the private and public sectors as well as academia. He also spent over 8 years with the Department of Environmental Protection in various positions, leaving the Department in 1989 as an Assistant Commissioner for Environmental Control.

“I am honored by this appointment, and look forward to contributing further to the progress currently being made to improve the environmental remediation process in New Jersey,” said Berkowitz. “Most of my career has been dedicated to the effective redevelopment of Brownfields and landfills in New Jersey, and it is exciting to be part of the recent advances made by the LSRP program, which is already expediting the way we clean up sites in our state.”
