Additional Information:

The NJDEP's Ecological Evaluation Technical Guidance document and its 2018 revisions provide details on how to conduct an Ecological Evaluation (EE) and an Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA) for environmentally sensitive natural resources (ESNR) that may be impacted by contaminated sites. This interactive class will cut through the legal and scientific jargon and focus on a variety of practical examples to illustrate how to address ESNRs as an LSRP or other environmental professional. Participants will leave class with a decision tree of approaches for investigating, managing, and ultimately remediating adverse ecological concerns.
