Senior NEPA Specialist

Remote - Burlington, MA

HMMH is a trusted leader in the study, assessment, and mitigation of the impacts of new and existing transportation projects on communities. We provide consulting services to government and private sector clients related to aviation, highway, rail, transit, industrial, construction, military, recreational, and entertainment projects. 

Since our founding in 1981, HMMH addresses environmental issues at airports. HMMH has delivered expert assistance to more than 200 airports worldwide. The focus of our Aviation Environmental Services (AES) Group is to analyze, evaluate, and find solutions for airport environmental issues. We prepare National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents, conduct noise and air quality studies, develop sustainability plans, evaluate and develop mitigation plans for environmental impacts, contribute to environmental documentation, engage the public, and ensure regulatory compliance. 

Our AES group has an immediate opening for an experienced NEPA Specialist in a remote position.

The NEPA Specialist will be involved with a variety of projects and will be responsible for the leadership, coordination, development, and delivery of environmental review documents that comply with NEPA and relevant state-level requirements for a diverse number of markets. The NEPA Specialist will demonstrate a strong understanding of the NEPA process for aviation and other transportation projects and will contribute to environmental and planning projects across HMMH’s practice areas, including our Surface Transportation and Federal groups. Project work includes the preparation, planning, analysis, and review of technical studies, NEPA documents (including Categorical Exclusions (CatExs), Environmental Assessments (EAs), and Environmental Impact Statements (EISs)), planning studies, and other relevant documents such as technical memorandums and reports.
