Mike McLaughlin, PE, is SCS Engineers’ Senior Vice President of Environmental Services and our National Specialist on Brownfields & Landfill Redevelopment and Electric Utilities. He is a licensed engineer and attorney with over 30 years of professional experience providing advice on environmental matters. He is an expert on environmental compliance, remediation, and allocation of response costs.

He is also well-versed in liquids management.
