Faced with the challenge of properly cleaning up contaminated sites in a timely manner, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) worked closely with the Legislature and stakeholders to develop legislation that dramatically altered the process for conducting environmental investigations and cleanups. In May 2009, the Governor signed the Site Remediation Reform Act (“SRRA”) into law.
SRRA established a licensing program for Site Remediation Professionals (“LSRPs”) who have responsibility for oversight of environmental investigation and cleanups. The LSRP’s highest priority is protection of public health and safety and the environment. Although the law changes the administrative process, it maintains the existing NJDEP clean-up standards. The NJDEP continues to have final authority over the clean-up process by requiring that remediating parties comply with applicable regulations, but the day-to-day management of cleanups is overseen by LSRPs.
