The Entech Group, Inc. (Entech) of NJ has announced new proposed rules from the NJDEP aimed at establishing site remediation policies that incorporate the new Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP) program.
The Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) signed into law on May 7, 2009, 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 will use New Jersey LSRPs to oversee and approve remediation work. The end result for many businesses is a reduction in the amount of time and effort needed to bring an environmental project to a successful closure.
When the Act becomes fully effective in 2012, all remediating parties must use the services of a New Jersey LSRP and must proceed with the clean-up of their site without prior NJDEP approval.
According to the Christie administration, the proposed rules establish “outcome-oriented criteria” for the cleanup of contaminated sites, “with a goal of ensuring the highest standards of protection of human health and the environment.”
These proposed regulations will significantly impact anyone involved in site remediation, whether they be environmental professionals, businesses or property owners.
