Additional Information:

On May 7, 2012 the NJDEP adopted rules that fully implement the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) that allows for the transition from DEP oversight to Licensed Site Remediation Professional oversight of remediation of contaminated sites. The final rule package includes the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (“ARRCS rules”) which contain the administrative requirements for conducting site remediation and Technical Requirements for Site Remediation, N.J.A.C. 7:26E (“Technical Requirements”) which outline how site remediation projects are to be conducted. All remediation, including remediation that is triggered by the ISRA and UST Rules must proceed pursuant to the ARRCS rules and the Technical Requirements.

With extensive input from internal and external stakeholders, the Department has worked to transform the Technical Requirements into a more performance-based set of regulations. It allows more flexibility in addressing contamination and potential exposure pathways while continuing to ensure that the remedies are protective of human health and the environment.

Representatives from NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) have developed the course content and will provide the training for this seminar.
