The Entech Group, Inc., a leading oil tank removal company in NJ, reminds businesses that the state has amended its site remediation policies, helping environmental projects, including oil tank removal, to be completed faster.
In May of 2009, NJ signed the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) into law. The law was created in response to the backlog of over 20,000 environmental projects facing the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The new system uses LSRPs to oversee and approve remediation work. The end result for many businesses in NJ is a reduction in the amount of time and effort needed to bring an environmental project to a successful closure.
Environmental Remediation and oil tank removal projects in NJ can now move along at an accelerated pace with the assistance of an LSRP. Under SRRA, the NJDEP’s approval is no longer required to proceed with remediation, resulting in contaminated sites being cleaned up more quickly and efficiently, thus providing a greater measure of environmental protection to the citizens of New Jersey and ensuring that development of underutilized properties are returned to the tax rolls more quickly.
When the Act becomes fully effective in 2012, all remediating parties must use the services of an LSRP and must proceed with the clean-up of their site without prior NJDEP approval. The Vice President of The Entech Group, Inc., Thomas A. Furey, is a Licensed Site Remediation Professional with over twenty-five years of experience in the environmental industry.
