Welcome to CDM Smith.

Benjamin Mosher, PE, BCEE, ENV SP

Associate, Senior Environmental Engineer

With experience in large-scale envi­ron­men­tal infra­struc­ture projects of all types and sizes, Ben Mosher has perfected the art of project management. As the firm’s Northeast Water Service Division Technical Delivery Manager, Ben is responsible for overall technical project delivery and staff development in the region. Most recently, his managerial and technical expertise in anaerobic digestion helped advance the Greater Lawrence Sanitary District’s organics to energy program, which worked to reduce the district’s reliance on utility-supplied power through the intro­duc­tion of renewable energy alter­na­tives. Ben’s an active member of a number of trade orga­ni­za­tions, has presented at notable conferences around the country and has been a contribut­ing author to industry design guidance documents, publi­ca­tions and regulations.

Which one of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? Initiative. By nature, I am driven to not only meet my challenges to the best of my ability, but also to see the bigger picture and initiate ways to deliver in the most efficient way possible. I enjoy wearing different hats and juggling a variety of balls while not letting any of them drop.

What is your favorite part of your job? I enjoy the challenge of bringing teams together to work toward a common goal. In my project work, I get to work with staff from across the globe. Each one brings a unique set of skills, energy and personality to the table. As the lead of the Northeast Water Services Group within CDM Smith, I’ve been fortunate enough to coordinate a group of very talented and energetic water professionals with varied backgrounds and aspirations. The challenge of working with each of these unique teams to solve some of our most complex environmental challenges is, without question, my favorite part of the job.

What are your 3 non-work passions? Swimming, running and hiking with my wife and daughter. If I enjoyed biking more than hiking I’d likely try triathlons, but the feeling of accomplishment and awe over the natural world after a long day of hiking has always won out for me. 

What’s your personal motto? “…To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
