Company Background



LP Environmental is a small business that was founded in 2009.  We have been blessed to have great clients and friends that continue to bless us today.

Many of our current clients have been with us since we opened.  Whether you manage environmental compliance, own a gas station, or are an environmental consultant needing subsurface remediation support, we would be happy to help in some way.

LP Environmental is owned and managed by Luke Patterson.


Experience and Expertise

Luke is a Professional Engineer and has performed environmental work in almost every state (just waiting on that call from Hawaii).  He has over 17 years of experience providing environmental engineering to clients.

Before opening LP Environmental, Luke worked at 2 other environmental companies in Nashville specializing in soil and groundwater investigations, ESAs, water quality, wastewater, compliance audits, design/install of remediation systems, UST Trust Fund work, and stormwater/spill plan management.

He has invented and patented groundwater remediation technology and has designed, built, and managed multiple remediation systems.

LP Environmental has made significant advancements in soil/groundwater remediation and shares this knowledge with employees and clients.


Education, Outreach, and Family

Luke has a Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering from UT-Knoxville.  Before entering the environmental industry, he spent a year working in the chemical engineering group at Allied-Signal.

Luke stays current with continuing education.  He has completed the Princeton environmental groundwater pollution and hydrology course; several EPA and State courses in groundwater modeling, remediation, and vacuum remediation; and maintains OSHA-hazardous waste and response certifications.

He was 1 of the 6 Board Members on the NSPE Board of Ethical Review (2012 to 2018) and was the Vice-President and Charter Officer for the Engineers without Borders (EWB) Nashville Chapter.

He is from Nashville and is married with 2 kids and 1 (hypoallergenic) dog. His kids apparently want to expand the company to "LP Global" one day.
