Important Reminders re Changes to NJDEP's Site Remediation Program

The NJBA cannot express enough the importance of taking the necessary steps to be in compliance with NJDEP's Site Remediation Paradigm.  NJDEP is very concerned that the public should be aware of impending mandatory deadlines (March 1) for the submission of specific reports: (http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/srra/srra_summary_changes.pdf).

Overlooking this deadline carries very serious fines and penalties, and placement in direct oversight. 

NJDEP has alerted the public previously about these deadlines, issued “Compliance Assistance Alert” letters (www.nj.gov/dep/srp), and is encouraging the various trade associations to continue outreach efforts to ensure compliance with requirements.  The following message is from NJDEP.

Please share this information to your members, clients and colleagues:

It is a requirement that ALL responsible parties of contaminated sites now have an affirmative obligation to cleanup their sites AND must do so in accordance with established Regulatory and Mandatory Time Frames. The Site Remediation Program's regulations also have mandatory penalties associated with failure to comply and the first compliance deadline is rapidly approaching!  Please see www.nj.gov/dep/srpto read about the March 1, 2012 deadline and the Department's Compliance Assistance Alert letters that were sent to more than 3,900 responsible parties.

If you are a property owner, municipality, school, or other entity in any way responsible for the cleanup of a contaminated site you should familiarize yourself with the legislation known as the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA, N.J.S.A. 58:10C) and the corresponding regulations known as the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS, N.J.A.C. 7:26C).  This legislation established a new class of environmental consultant, the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP).  The LSRP program will be fully implemented as of May 2012.

In order to help you understand the fundamentals of the LSRP program, please read the, Overview of the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) Program document at www.nj.gov/dep/srp/lsrp_program_overview.html
