LBG was founded in 1944 by R.M. (Max) Leggette one of the earliest employees of the Groundwater Branch of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). He was joined in the 1950’s by M.L. Brashears and Jack Graham, also veteran’s of the USGS. Early consulting services focused on groundwater development for public supply and industrial growth, as well as mine dewatering projects. By the mid 1950’s, the firm had taken on its first contamination projects.
For more than half a century, LBG has worked closely with public water suppliers and authorities, private industrial and commercial companies, and government agencies to locate and develop groundwater, to investigate and remediate soil and groundwater problems, and to address a wide range of water-related issues. To meet our clients’ increasingly complex environmental needs, the firm also offers, comprehensive environmental and civil engineering consulting services.
The firm has grown steadily and services a diverse range of clients with nineteen offices located in fifteen states throughout the country. To better serve our clients in the southwest, in 1992 the firm acquired William F. Guyton Associates located in Austin and Houston, Texas. LBG-Guyton Associates is a division of LBG.
