NJ's LSRP Program Puts Site Remediation In The Hands of Professionals

What are the specifics of the Licensed Site Remediation Program?

In 2009, the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) was signed into law allowing for sweeping changes to how and New Jersey tackles environmental site remediation. The goal of the SRRA was to not only increase the pace of remediation, but decrease threat of contamination and as a result, quickly sites to their useful purpose. As of May 7, 2013, all parties remediating sites are required to follow N.J.S.A. 58:10B-1.3b 1-9.

As part of that goal to increase the pace of remediation the SRRA set out to allow remediation to take place under the supervision of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP). As a result, a remediating party no longer is beholden to the timeframe of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for direction and approvals but can instead can work with and under the supervision of a LSRP (with limited exceptions).
