The Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) brought major changes to the way contaminated properties are remediated in New Jersey.
The Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program was created to expedite cleanup of sites in need of remediation in New Jersey. The LSRP program represents a transition from the existing NJDEP lead project management system, to LSRP lead project management, effectively utilizes licensed LSRP’s to implement the NJDEP regulations. The LSRP program also provides for regulatory and mandatory timeframes by which a responsible must comply, as well as NJDEP permit and oversight fees. Unlike before, property owners will no longer need to pursue NJDEP approval prior to proceeding with remediation.
As part of these “new” rules the NJDEP has recently issued correspondence to responsible parties associated with contaminated properties stating they should hire a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) for the management of their environmental site, and enter into the LSRP program
The Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) has extensive education and experience requirements to meet the state’s licensing standards and is required to abide by a strict code of ethics. A LSRP will personally supervise investigations and remediation of contaminated property according to standards and regulations, and will issue final approval (a “Response Action Outcome” (RAO) closure document which is equivalent to a NJDEP issued, “No Further Action” (NFA) letter) when remediation is complete.
