Gregory Cummings, PE
Director - Water/Wastewater/Office Leader
We are a local employee-owned firm providing sustainable solutions to enhance the communities we work in moving them closer to economic and environmental sustainability.
As leader of LDG’s Corning office, Greg not only has his finger on the pulse of water and wastewater issues impacting municipalities but also innovative ways to secure alternative funding. Since the start of 2017, he has secured more than $15 million in grants for Pennsylvania and New York municipalities to help them move ahead on otherwise unaffordable rural development and small water and sewer projects.
These initiatives furnish potable water for households suffering from poor water quality and provide better access to water/sewer facilities to grow the tax base for municipalities which creates jobs. Greg’s work also enhances public sewer access to eliminate malfunctioning systems resulting in a cleaner watershed. He is adept at listening and identifying creative solutions in the face of regulatory mandates/compliance, pretreatment requirements and filled funding gaps to intermunicipal negotiations and regionalization issues.
Passionate about community stewardship, Greg has formed non-profit youth organizations so hundreds of youth may participate in soccer and wrestling and raised funds to buy equipment/uniforms. For Calvary United Methodist Church in Lawrenceville, PA, he serves on the Staff Parish Relations Committee which manages a food pantry, obtains clothing and raises funds for the needy, and organizes ministry groups and child care. He is a school board director of the Northern Tioga School District with a mission to equip students with critical thinking and problem-solving tools essential for lifelong learning. In the profession, he is a vice chair of the executive committee of the American Council of Engineering Companies in New York and will become treasurer in 2018.
