Regulated Underground Storage Tank removal projects in NJ will now require a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) to oversee the project.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is launching a new ranking system that places environmentally contaminated sites into one of five categories and thereby ranks them from best to worst. After scoring, the NJDEP will determine whether a site is being actively handled by the responsible party. If a site needs environmental investigation and remediation, a LSRP will be necessary to move the Project forward.
The end result for many businesses using a LSRP in NJ is a reduction in the amount of time and effort needed to bring an environmental project to a successful closure. These proposed regulations will significantly impact anyone involved in site remediation, whether they be environmental professionals, businesses or property owners.
The Vice President of The Entech Group, Inc., Thomas A. Furey, PE is a Licensed Site Remediation Professional with over twenty-five years of experience in the engineering and environmental industry.
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.”
The NJDEP has issued letters in January 2012 to responsible parties. Properties in need of professional environmental and underground/aboveground tank services in NJ should be prepared to act quickly in 2012. Now is the time to enlist the experience and knowledge of Entech, NJ storage tank specialists with over 20 years of environmental site remediation experience and service.
