TBS Welcomes Trusted Environmental Advisor - Monday, March 16, 2015



 March 2015 - T. Baker Smith, LLC (TBS) welcomes Cy J. Toups, P.E. as a Senior Project Manager and Environmental Engineer in our Houma, Louisiana office.

 Growing up in south Louisiana, Cy became an avid outdoorsman and knew he wanted to work on projects that would benefit the overall quality of our local environment.  He spent a few summers interning at TBS and quickly realized that combining his love for the outdoors while utilizing technical and creative skills made for the perfect career in environmental engineering.

 Cy received a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering from Louisiana State University in 2002 and is now a Louisiana-licensed professional engineer. With 11 years of experience as a consulting environmental engineer, Cy provides an additional layer of expert professional service. He has experience with air, water, and waste permitting, writing Facility Response and SPCC Plans, and assisting clients with enforcement actions.

 Cy's primary focus has been assisting clients with regulatory compliance and environmental due diligence.  He has conducted Phase I ESAs for a multitude of markets, including private landowners, banking organizations, government agencies, industrial corporations, and commercial entities involved in real estate transactions.  A number of these projects resulted in further investigations to identify soil and groundwater contamination, which ultimately protected clients from environmental liabilities. Additionally, Cy is well-versed in conducting oil and gas compliance audits to identify a facility's deficiencies and working towards bringing the site back into compliance before a regulatory agent pays an unexpected visit.  His expertise proves valuable in servicing companies dependent on satisfactory environmental audit scores to secure large contracts with major oil and gas clients.

 "Bringing on an additional environmental engineer—  one who is an established trusted advisor—to our team, provides another level of integrated services to our clients," said Kenneth J. King, REP, Vice President, Environmental.

 For more information on how Cy can assist your project needs, please contact him at 985.223.9256 (office), 985.870.6386 (mobile), or
